According to Channel NewsAsia, the bus had the right of way, and couldn’t stop in time to avoid Mr Atan, who had dashed across the road.

SBS Transit spokesperson Tammy Tan expressed her sadness to Channel NewsAsia.

We are currently at the hospital with [Mr Atan’s] family to render assistance as best we can.

Always put your safety first

In Parliament last month, Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan mentioned that 90 accidents involving electric bicycles and scooters had happened in the first half of the year.

We here at MustShareNews would like to urge our readers to always put their safeties first. A helmet should always be worn at all times especially when riding such vehicles. It could mean the difference between life and death.

We send our condolences to friends and family of Mr Atan.
