Food delivery riders spend most of their time on roads, travelling between places to deliver food. Unfortunately, this also means they are more susceptible to traffic accidents.
On Tuesday (23 Mar) night, a food delivery rider was fatally hit by a car at Kovan.
His family is now seeking witnesses or video footage of the accident.

According to ROADS.sg’s Facebook post, the accident happened at around 10pm on Tuesday (23 Mar) at the junction of Tampines Road and Hougang Avenue 1.
