A 48-year-old cyclist died in hospital after an accident with a truck at the junction of New Upper Changi Road and Bedok North Road on Monday (Oct 26).

The police told Stomp that they were alerted to the hit-and-run accident at 11.42am.

The male cyclist was taken to Changi General Hospital, where he subsequently died.

A 67-year-old man was subsequently arrested in relation to the case.

Stomper Joe was on a bus at around 12.05pm when he passed by the accident scene and saw a man lying on the road.
