Pillion rider flung from bike after motorcyclist crashes into stationary car along SLE

A motorcyclist fell off, while his pillion rider was flung forward, after their motorbike collided with a stationary car on Monday (July 24) at around 10.41am along the Seletar Expressway (SLE) towards the Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE), before Lentor Avenue Exit.

The incident was witnessed by Facebook user Manster Wirman, and captured on the dashboard camera of his car which was passing by.

Stomp reader Achmad later forwarded the video to Stomp.

In the video, a stationary white car was seen on the rightmost lane of the expressway, with its trunk opened.

Suddenly a motorcyclist and his pillion rider on a green motorbike collided into the rear of the vehicle.

The collision sent the pillion rider flying ahead of the car, landing a few meters away, while the motorcyclist crashed into the boot and fell on the road.

The sheer impact of the crash shattered parts of the two vehicles, and debris could be seen flying seconds after the collision.

Said Achmad: “I think the motorcyclist probably thought that the car was moving.

“Maybe they didn’t realise that the car had broken down until it was too late.”

A spokesman for the police has issued an official statement on the incident:

"On July 24, 2017, the police were alerted to an accident involving a car and a motorcycle along SLE towards BKE before Lentor Avenue Exit. 

"The 24-year-old male motorcyclist and his 21-year-old male pillion rider were unconscious when conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. 

"Police investigations are ongoing."
