SINGAPORE: In a heart-wrenching incident, a delivery man, Mr. Lee Boon Tiam, aged 46, met with a fatal accident while on his way home to celebrate his birthday.

The accident occurred on Monday evening (11 Sept) near Woodleigh Mall when Mr Lee’s motorcycle collided with a car.

The collision took place at the junction of Upper Aljunied Road and Bidadari Park Drive at approximately 8:14 p.m.

Following the accident, Mr Lee was found unconscious and immediately rushed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, according to reports from the police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF).

Tragic loss of ‘Superman father’ in an accident

Mr Lee Boon Tiam, a permanent resident of Singapore, was employed at a factory in Aljunied.

His eldest son, Mr. Lee Yong Sen, aged 23, recounted that his father typically finished work between 5 pm and 6 pm.

They had prepared a birthday feast for him, expecting him to return home after work.

The family prepared a “Superman cake” for Boon Tiam, whom they considered their “Superman father”

When he did not return home for dinner, the family initially assumed he was working overtime.

However, their hopes were shattered when they received a call around 8:30 pm informing them of the accident.

Mr. Lee Yong Sen, a car mechanic, shared their anguish, saying, “it was only when my mother, my brother, and I arrived at the hospital at 10 pm that we realized how serious our father’s condition was. That was when we also asked my younger sister to rush to the hospital.”

Mr Lee had suffered a brain haemorrhage and required immediate surgery.

However, despite the efforts of medical professionals, he was pronounced brain dead at 2 a.m. on Tuesday and eventually succumbed to head injuries at 7 p.m.

The sudden loss of Mr. Lee has deeply impacted his family.

“This was too sudden, and we could not accept it at all. My parents loved each other deeply, and my father’s death hit my mother really hard.”

The family is now seeking answers as to the circumstances of the accident.

The deceased’s son appeals online for footage

On Wednesday (13 Sept), a Facebook user — who claims to be the deceased victim’s son — posted an appeal on the SG Road Vigilante group.

He mentioned that the driver involved in the accident claimed not to have seen his father on the road and did not possess a dashboard camera.

For this reason, they are appealing for eyewitnesses to come forward to provide information that can help shed light on the tragic incident.

The majority of the comments conveyed their sympathies to the original poster (OP) and their family.

In contrast, one user proposed the idea that Woodleigh Mall might have surveillance cameras positioned toward the intersection where the accident occurred.

The investigation into the accident is ongoing, with a 38-year-old male car driver cooperating with the authorities, as stated by the police.
