On Thursday (16 March), a Malaysian couple was unfortunately killed while travelling across the causeway.
The accident, which took place along Second Link, occurred at the 18.4km mark of Tuas Second Link.
36-year-old Low Kim Cheong and 30-year-old Tan Lay Ru, the couple involved in the accident, were riding on their motorcycle at that point in time.
Tan was also six months pregnant with her second child.
After the accident, the Malaysian police claimed that the accident occurred due to the couple’s motorcycle skidding along the road.
The police added that the accident did not involve other vehicles.
However, other people, like Tan’s sister, seem to have something else to say.
Here’s everything you need to know about that.
Couple Had Worked in Singapore for Many Years
When speaking to Shin Min Daily News, Tan’s older sister shared that her sister and brother-in-law had worked in Singapore for many years before they passed.
The couple, who got married in 2018, worked at different hardware stores.
While they were at work, their two-year-old son would be cared for by his maternal grandmother.
Tan’s older sister also mentioned that Low and Tan were trying to cross the Tuas Second Link causeway to get to work during the time of the incident.
Sister Noticed that There Were No Signs that Motorcycle Had Skidded
After the incident, Tan’s older sister was informed of the incident and went to the accident scene.
She mentioned that she did not notice any skid marks on the motorcycle.
Hence, she inferred that the motorcycle did not skid across the road, unlike what the police mentioned.
After the paramedics pronounced Low and Tan dead at the scene, Tan’s older sister lodged a police report.
She added that someone at the scene said that a silver-coloured Malaysian car hit the pair before fleeing.
However, she could not find any eyewitnesses at that point in time.
Family of Deceased Appealing for Eyewitnesses Online
On Thursday (16 March) afternoon, Tan’s older sister uploaded a post on Facebook to appeal for eyewitnesses.
The post included photos of the motorcycle and the police report.
In the caption of the post, Tan’s older sister wrote that any information that people had regarding the incident would be greatly appreciated.
Another post made by Tan’s cousin showed that one of the bodies was found on the road while the other was flung onto the barrier splitting the two sides of the road.
In the comments section, a netizen named Kelvin Goh wrote that he saw a man lying motionless and face-down on the road when he passed by the area at 7.07 am that day.
