A 23-year-old man died after the motorcycle he was riding was run over by a private bus at the junction of Bencoolen Street and Stamford Road junction on June 15.

The burial for Muhammad Yadiy Hamsyari Bin Yaziz was held at Pusara Aman Mosque the next day.

On June 17, which was Hari Raya Haji, his mother posted on Facebook in Malay: "Lonely and gloomy Eid without my beloved child. May the soul of my son Muhd Yadiy be placed among the righteous."

An ex-schoolmate posted: "You were too young. It's as if it was only yesterday we went to Cambodia for the Sec 3 school trip and you put toothpaste on my face."

In response to a Stomp query, a family friend said: "Please give the family space to process everything privately. They will not be making any comments regarding the accident."

Stomp contributor Wei Sien shared on TikTok a video of the accident's aftermath.
