SLE accident: Victim's family appeals to netizens to stop circulating photos and videos

The family of a motorcyclist, who died in a Seletar Expressway accident on Monday (Dec 16), is appealing to netizens to stop circulating photos and videos of the accident.

The 45-year-old motorcyclist Wang Lai Peng was killed in the accident that involved two cars and a trailer on Monday morning. 

The victim's nephew Chen believes that his uncle was probably leaving Johor Bahru and returning to Singapore for work when the accident occurred.

Wang had been travelling between Singapore and Malaysia for about 20 years due to work and has a house in each country. 

In an interview with Lianhe Wanbao, Chen said: "My uncle isn't married and my grandparents have passed, so he's always been living alone.

"He's always in Johor Bahru over the weekends and is in Singapore on weekdays.

"My uncle has always been a hard worker and he loves helping people. Didn't think he would go like this."

Chen also shared that footage and photos of the accident have been troubling the victim's family. 

The family feels extremely saddened due to the accident and hopes that netizens would stop circulate these videos and photos.

Chen added: "Hopefully the police can quickly uncover the truth behind the accident and help my uncle rest in peace.

"This tragedy is extremely saddening.

"To others who are riding their motorcycles into Singapore for work, please be mindful of your safety."
