A 38-year-old man died in an accident involving his motorcycle, a van and a lorry in Bedok on Sunday afternoon (July 16).

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident along Bedok North Road towards Tampines Avenue 10 at around 3pm.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at scene by a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) paramedic.

According to Shin Min Daily News, the victim is believed to have been dragged for about 30 metres after getting run over by the lorry, which had been behind his motorcycle.

There was a pool of blood under the lorry and skid marks on the road. Reporters who visited the scene on Monday morning also spotted a blood trail of more than 10 metres.

The Chinese-language daily identified the victim as full-time Foodpanda rider Mohamed Rezeini, who is survived by his parents and an elder brother.

Mr Rezeini's friends have taken to Facebook to mourn his death, reported The Straits Times.

Facebook user Afyx Apandi said: "You were our backbone. You were the brother that pick us up when we fall. Thank you for everything... I love you."

Another Facebook user, Jonathan Teo, wrote: "You showed me a great example of how to be a better person, a better team lead and a better teammate."

Police investigations are ongoing.
