A MOTORCYCLIST was crushed to death in a large pile-up in Ang Mo Kio yesterday morning (9 April, 2014).

The accident, which involved four vehicles and the motorcycle, happened around 9am near the junction of Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 and Marymount Road.

At the time, the motorcycle was behind a minibus and two cars at a red light at the traffic junction.

Eyewitnesses said that a lorry then barrelled down the road and hit the motorcycle before slamming into the back of the minibus.

An eyewitness told Lianhe Wanbao: "The rider flew off his bike, fell on the lorry's windshield, and was instantly crushed between the two vehicles."

All that could be seen was a leg sticking out, he added.

The two cars were damaged by the impact as well.

Four people were taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital with injuries.

Lorry driver Su Chunsheng, 50, told the newspaper the accident happened because the lorry's brakes had failed.

He added that the lorry had just been taken to a workshop to have its gearshift fixed, and he had collected the lorry yesterday morning.

In a striking coincidence, all five vehicles in the pile-up were red in colour, and the incident happened at a red light.

Lianhe Wanbao reported that some onlookers, wary that this portended (warning that something, especially something momentous or calamitous is likely to happen) bad luck, removed red-coloured items that they were wearing.
