    I work nearby (Actually across the road, so the view is pretty clear from my office.)... yeah heard of this incident, very very sad.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Looks like the Johor bus was trying to counterflow? He forgot what side of the road we drive on?

    R.I.P.

    Any idea why the accident happened? It looks like 2 buses, 1 motorcycle and 1 taxi is involved in the accident.

    On the side, I always find this to be a dangerous junction with the "islets" more of a nuisance. I think it is at a spot where you go up slope and then get a small adrenaline coming down. Maybe LTA need to re-align some of the roads here.

    Either speeding or brake malfunction which end up in lost control of the bus.

    You can see how "messed up" this junction is. If you don't drive there frequently, you would be confused which lane you should be in. Better to correct it now than to wait till it is more built up.

    The blue bus probably trying to avoid the collision and bump into the cab on the opposite direction, but.... what is the red bus doing?

    actually, i only see one thing:

    the bus driver probably tried to avoid the motorcyclist, but still rammed him anyways?

    Tried but failed la.... We not there mah can only guess... but I still dun understand the red bus. It's too under-steer to make the turn, blocking the traffic.
