They also stated that his wife is currently three months pregnant.

Perhaps this explained the brother’s outburst of emotions shortly after the accident. He was apparently heard shouting,
Little brother! Dad and mum loved you the most, and your child hasn’t even been born yet…

On the day of the accident, the late Mr Tan’s wife had reportedly told him not to go to work as he had woken up late, mentioned The Straits Times (ST).

However, as he had just 13 more orders to meet the criteria for an incentive, the determined rider left home to earn a living.

Mr Tan’s parents have been “inconsolable” following the devastating accident as the 24-year-old was apparently their favourite child.

His brother also shared that the deceased always brought laughter and joy to his family and friends.

Brother appeals for accident footage

The late Mr Tan’s brother has since taken to Facebook to appeal for footage of the accident, which he says happened along Gambas Avenue at about 1pm on Sunday (10 Apr).

Speaking to ST, the older brother shared his hope that he and his family will be able to find closure knowing what had happened,

At least I want to know what happened to him so (we) can get some closure.
