A 34-year-old motorcyclist was trapped under a tipper truck when the two vehicles collided yesterday afternoon at the Jalan Kayu flyover.

It was raining at the time of the accident.

A fire engine, an ambulance and two other vehicles were sent to extricate the man, said a Singapore Civil Defence Force spokesman.

He was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital for treatment.

The New Paper understands that he was still alive when paramedics first tended to him.

No arrests were made and investigations into the cause of the accident are ongoing, said a police spokesman.
