Bike enthusiast in fatal crash

He was a biking enthusiast who would purchase new parts for his motorcycle and post photos of his rides on social media.

Despite being an adventurous soul, Mr Jeremy Lim would always caution his buddies to ride safely on the roads.

Sadly, he was killed in a road accident on Tuesday, leaving his girlfriend, sister and mother behind.

His family said that he was a responsible rider and are appealing for witnesses.

The accident occurred on the Kranji Expressway before the Choa Chu Kang Drive exit at 8am, causing a seven-vehicle pile-up.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said an ambulance was sent to the scene, and a police spokesman confirmed that two motorcyclists in their 30s were taken to the National University Hospital.

Mr Lim, who was found unconscious at the scene, died from his injuries later in the day.

With a hunger for the unconventional, the manager had a fondness for the outdoors. Photos show him taking part in physical activities such as snorkelling and cross- country biking across Vietnam.


Friends remember him as someone who was generous and caring, had "impeccable comedic timing", and who always made people laugh.

In a Facebook post dated October 2013, Mr Lim posted a picture from a biking trip with a cheeky caption: "Lesson #37: There's always light at the end of the tunnel... hopefully it isn't an oncoming truck".

Unfortunately, a lorry was involved in the crash. The other five vehicles involved were another bike, a lorry, two cars and a bus.

Mr Lim's friends said that he was a person who put others before himself.

Said Mr Ho Shu Huang, 34, who has known Mr Lim for 15 years: "A true testament of a person is how so many (people) dropped what they were doing and went straight to the hospital within an hour of hearing about the crash.

"And how so many are stepping forward to help with the funeral arrangements."

Mr Lim and Mr Ho met during their national service days and soon became friends, but their bond lasted well beyond NS.

"He was like a brother. We had very different backgrounds, but we got on very well," Mr Ho said.

He added that Mr Lim had a large number of close friends.

"It may sound impossible to be loved by so many, but this came about because of his willingness to give and be there for people," said Mr Ho.
