Sometimes I see pieces of wood on the road, I think when a speeding bike comes sure kena one.

The usual suspect is lorries dropping shitload on the roads without properly securing what they are carrying.

And LTA doing what ?

 

Happened earlier today! RIP.

SINGAPORE: A motorcyclist has died after being involved in an accident with a car along PIE near Dunearn Road exit on Tuesday morning (Aug 8), authorities said.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) was alerted to the incident at 7.25am, and sent an ambulance there. A male in his 30s was pronounced dead at the scene, it added. 

Police said separately that they were alerted to the accident involving a car and a motorcycle, and the 31-year-old motorcyclist was lying motionless before the paramedics pronounced him dead. Investigations are ongoing, they added. 

 

Channel NewsAsia understands that there was a wooden plank on the road, and the motorcyclist hit the plank, lost control of his bike and was flung over the central divider to the other side of the expressway. He was then hit by the car

ð¤ I thought I saw the first rider sneak through before the SUV turtled and smashed into the 2nd rider sending him under the wheels of the truck... and the 3rd rider ran into the overturned SUV at that point...

 

What am I missing?

Yep u got it right now.

 

So the 2nd rider that went under the lorry died.

Looking at the photograph of the earlier PIE fatal accident, not sure which scenario happened.

 

My take is scenario 2.

 

Anyway hope rider :a-rip:

Is there mention of a couple behind? One passenger "crawled" out - male or the same female passenger?

 

The report is not very clear... If indeed another PHV, it is about time LTA buck up and impose more stringent requirements on the drivers.

 

 

 

There will be unintended consequences - the officers may secretly dig up the roads at night and then self-report, improving their KPIs.

 

Like the Italian firemen setting off fires recently.

The CNA report had stated that there was a married couple in the car ...

 

"The other motorcyclist, a Malaysian, and a married couple in the car were taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. The driver of the car is in his early thirties."

 

But it did not distinguish whether the driver of the car is the woman's husband (i.e. the child's father), or the PHV driver!

I broke 2 rims last year because of such a log.

 

 

Once on a sunday morning while driving in AYE, right in front of the lower delta road saw a big log of wood lying across lanes 2 and 3 and across the chveron towards the exit. I was exiting the expressway and marginally avoided driving over the log of wood...

 

I called the expressway hotline and reported about it. Could not see clearly if it was removed on my way back (in the opposite side) after about 3 hours.

 

LTA /TP should step up enforcement of these errant lorries and fine them until they are bone dry...the amount of inconvenience/danger they cause can't be explained.

Probably the result of a sudden, hard right swerve, at a relatively fast pace, on electric power steering.

Why is there a plank on the road?

LTA road cams should be able to pick up the vehicle that drop the plank
