Two Brothers Killed Tampines Accident: Bodies Identified by Family

Singapore: Two Brothers Killed Tampines Accident: Bodies Identified by Family, who who were killed after being hit by a cement mixer truck while cycling at Tampines. MP Baey Yam Keng says authorities will review the junction of Tampines Avenue 9 and Tampines Street 45, following a fatal accident there.

The mother involved in the gruesome accident on Monday identified her two boys dead bodies on Tuesday morning. She arrived at the mortuary just before 8am surrounded by a group of relatives, friends, and a man who is believed to be her husband.

The young brothers named as Nigel Older Brother and Donovan Younger Brother cycled around the Tampines estate frequently. The tragic accident came as a rude shock to their distraught parents who said their sons were usually very careful on the roads.

Mr Francis Yap, the father of victims (2 boys), said: “It’s very sad. As a father, I have lost two kids. I hope that those people driving on the roads think about other people’s families also. For those small roads, it’s better to travel within the speed limits and don’t go so fast, especially if you drive a big vehicle. It’s very dangerous. So you must take extra caution to safeguard other people’s lives.”
