According to The Straits Times, the tragedy occurred at the junction of Anchorvale Road and Sengkang East Way - near the Sengkang Sports and Recreation Centre - at around 2.40 pm.

Ms Huang Luyang, 38, who was a cashier, was apparently heading to work and crossing the road. It is unclear though, if she was using the pedestrian crossing.

It is understood that she got hit by an SBS Transit bus, and got trapped underneath.

She was pronounced dead at 3.40am on Saturday at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. She leaves behind her husband and two young sons - aged 1 and 3.

Police are investigating the incident.

Meanwhile, Ms Tammy Tan, senior vice-president of corporate communications at SBS Transit, has expressed her condolences on behalf of the company.

"Our top priority is to assist the family as best we can in this very difficult time. We are meanwhile assisting the police with their investigations,"she told The Straits Times.

Our deepest condolences go out to Ms Huang's family. May they gain the strength to cope with this loss...
