A woman was hit by an SBS Transit bus in Sengkang on Friday (Nov 17) and conveyed unconscious to a Khoo Teck Puat Hospital where she later died.

The accident occurred at the junction of Anchorvale Road and Sengkang East way, around 2.40pm.

The victim, Ms Huang Luyang, 38, is survived by a husband and two sons, aged one and three.

During the time of the accident, Ms Huang is believed to have been crossing the road on her way to work.

It is unclear, however, if she was using the pedestrian crossing.

According to The Straits Times, Ms Huang was trapped beneath the bus.

In an update by the police on Saturday, Ms Huang was pronounced dead, and investigations were ongoing.

The time of death was around 3.40am, reported The Straits Times.

Photos showing the bus parked along the side of the road have been circulating online.

In the photos, Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers and several other people were seen at the back of the bus.

In response to media queries, Ms Tammy Tan, senior vice-president of corporate communications at SBS Transit, said the company was very sorry and very sad about the accident.

She added: “Our top priority is to assist the family as best we can in this very difficult time.

“We are meanwhile assisting the police with their investigations.”
