An accident occured at Ang Mo Kio with two people lying on the road.

When Ms Justina Tan rushed out of her unit after a deafening crash, what really captured her attention was the sight of foreign workers from a nearby construction site coming over to help direct traffic.

She told The Straits Times yesterday that the workers had taken it upon themselves to set up traffic cones along a stretch of the road, including the use of light sticks and a stop/go sign to alert motorists and ease the flow of traffic.

The motorcyclist, a 30-year-old man, and his 25-year-old pillion rider were conscious when taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, police said.
