An accident involving a motorcycle and a truck on the Central Expressway (CTE) has left a 27-year-old motorcyclist dead.

After the accident, witnesses posted footage of a blue police tent, indicating that there was a fatality.

Cones and police officers donning reflective vests surrounded the tent, which likely covered the motorcyclist’s body in the center of the highway.

Lying right beside the tent is a fallen motorcycle, presumably belonging to the motorcyclist.

By 9am, a tow truck had arrived, noted Shin Min Daily News. As police cordoned off the area, a traffic jam formed, as cars filtered to the other lanes.

The 57-year-old driver of the truck is assisting with ongoing investigations. Until the authorities reveal more information, let’s avoid speculating about the accident.

MS News expresses our condolences to the loved ones of the deceased.
