A 54-year-old man died in hospital following a chain collision involving his motorcycle, a lorry and three cars along the Pan-Island Expressway on Saturday evening (July 22).

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident along PIE towards Tuas, before Lorong 6 Toa Payoh, at around 7pm.
