Rafie Sherman Abdullah Tan, 19-years-old rode a motorcycle without a license with his girlfriend, Nor Ayuni Abdullah, 17-years-old; who was riding pillion and lost control of the bike before crashing, both of them were killed in the accident.
State coroner Adam Nakhoda delivered his findings on 7 January, ruling the death of both teenagers as a road traffic misadventure.
He said that it was likely that Rafie was inexperienced in riding a motorcycle and it may have contributed to the loss of control.
Rafie had gotten the motorcycle that was rented by a third party and was riding it along Jurong West Central 1 with Ayuni.
He lost control of the bike while turning at a right bend on 16 July last year at around 3.40pm, and both he and his girlfriend were thrown off the motorcycle after mounting a kerb and hitting two trees.
They were conveyed to the hospital after suffering multiple injuries and Ayuni died about 2 hours later, while Rafie died 3 days later.
The identity of the person who rented the motorcycle was not disclosed.
Nakhoda emphasized on the importance of obtaining the requisite driving license before operating vehicles on the road.
