Video footage has emerged showing how an accident between a taxi and car occurred along Robinson Road on Wednesday (Nov 6), causing the car to turn onto its side.

Several Stompers alerted Stomp to the video that is circulating online.

Stomp earlier reported that the 62-year-old taxi driver was taken to Singapore General Hospital after the accident.

A man was seen climbing out of the car as security officers stood by with a ladder.

In the video, that appears to have been taken from a surveillance camera, the cabby is seen suddenly changing lanes from the second to the first lane, cutting in front of the silver car.
