The 36-year-old aircraft technician, Mohammad Syaifful, was reportedly on his motorcycle while trying to avoid an elderly pedestrian crossing the road, lost control of his motorcycle and crashed due to the downpour.
The 72-year-old pedestrian involved was conscious and was subsequently sent to the hospital.

A colleague of the deceased, 25, was on her way home in a private-hire vehicle when she witnessed Syaifful being unconscious and bleeding from the head.
According to Shin Min Daily News, the deceased had a VTL ticket to return to Malaysia and ART test results showing that he were to go back to Malaysia on 24th February.
