A video that captured a dramatic accident at the junction along Marina Boulevard on Tuesday (Oct 6) has garnered nearly 100,000 views after it was shared on Facebook.

In the 44-second-long video clip posted on the Facebook page Beh Chia Lor - Singapore Roads on Wednesday, a van can be seen beating the red light as vehicles on the road perpendicular to it started to move as the traffic light turns green.

The van collides with a motorcycle before crashing into a white sports car that later hit a traffic light upon impact.

Several passersby are also seen approaching the car to check on its driver, who appear to exit the vehicle through the passenger seat.

The video was recorded by the dashboard camera of tipper truck driver Mr Fahil, who was traveling behind the affected vehicles at that time.

The Straits Times reported that a few Certis Cisco officers also helped to direct traffic at the accident scene.

Mr Fahil recounted the accident, saying that the motorcyclist's helmet flew off upon impact from the collision.

He also said that the drivers of the van and car sustained minor injuries.

A foreign worker from a nearby construction site was also spotted shielding the injured motorcyclist with an umbrella as paramedics attended to him.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it sent two ambulances to the scene, while the police said a male motorcyclist, 33, and a van driver, 44, were conveyed to the Singapore General Hospital and Raffles Hospital respectively.
