A 49-year-old motorcyclist died in a traffic accident along the Central Expressway (CTE) yesterday night (July 14) at around 9pm.

Stomper Low and Stella alerted Stomp to the accident.

Stella sent in a video, showing a jam on the expressway.

In the video, two police patrol vehicles, an ambulance, as well as a tow truck could be spotted, parked across several lanes on the road.

A blue police tent could also be seen.

Low told Stomp in a phone interview that he was stuck in a massive jam from Chin Swee Road towards the exit to Pan Island Expressway (PIE) at around 10.15pm.

Said Low: “Some friends told me that there had been an accident.

"The jam was really quite bad."
