Yesterday morning on the busy Seletar Expressway, a lone motorcyclist (and those around him) got the biggest shock of his life when he drove over a wooden block on the road.
Due to the impact with the object, he then lost control of his bike, swerving like 'siao' until he was tossed onto the floor, with a hard landing. Ouch!

The poor motorcyclist must have not seen it too, or he would have avoided it from the start.
It was shared that the lorry behind him then slowed down, stopping to render assistance to the fallen rider. Heng! There are still some good Samaritans in the world.
Online reactions to the unfortunate incident were mixed, ranging from nasty:
As well as some kinder comments that expressed concern towards the motorcyclist:
This well-meaning commentator managed to sneak a pun in:
Steady la. Us Sinkie drivers may be a hot-tempered bunch, but we can still show empathy where it is due.
We hope the motorcyclist is well and heals quickly from his injuries. Stay safe on the roads everyone!
