Eyewitnesses described the harrowing scene, where the man was left stuck in the drain, his upper body and part of his lower body trapped, while his legs protruded out. The Singapore Police Force and the Singapore Civil Defence Force received alerts about the accident at around 3:15 pm and promptly responded to the scene.

According to authorities, the rider was believed to have lost control of his PAB while traveling along Eunos Avenue 3 towards Eunos Road 8, resulting in the self-skid that led to the crash. Fortunately, the man was conscious when he was conveyed to Changi General Hospital for medical attention.

The incident has sparked concerns about road safety, particularly among food delivery riders who often rely on modified PABs to navigate Singapore’s busy streets. The use of illegal modifications on PABs can significantly increase the risk of accidents, and this incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of adhering to safety regulations.

As police investigations continue, the incident highlights the need for greater awareness and education among riders about the dangers of modified PABs. It also underscores the importance of stricter enforcement of safety regulations to prevent such accidents from occurring in the future.
