An accident involving a car and a motorcycle along the Tampines Expressway (TPE) on Tuesday (Aug 18) left two people dead and four others injured.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident on the TPE towards Seletar Expressway (SLE) at 4.23pm.

The 62-year-old male rider and his pillion, a 59-year-old woman, were pronounced dead at the scene by a paramedic.

The 31-year-old male car driver and his three passengers, aged between 10 to 28, were conscious when taken to Sengkang General Hospital.

Several Stompers shared videos of the accident scene, where two police tents can be seen.
