Singapore – A truck carrying workers was seen skidding on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), causing an accident with another vehicle and a motorcyclist.
Facebook page Beh Chia Lor – Singapore Route posted a video of the crash, which happened on Thursday (September 30) at around 7 p.m.
A vehicle capturing the scene on a dash cam from the rear of the truck was driving along PIE when the truck suddenly changed lanes.
The truck turned into the rightmost lane, struck the center bulkhead and struck a passing vehicle and motorcyclist.
After being thrown to the ground, the motorcyclist pushed himself to the side of the road for safety.
The truck’s bumper was spotted in the middle of the road after breaking away from the collision.
“The truck with workers suddenly loses control, most likely skidding while avoiding changing taxi lanes in front,” the post noted.
âThe red taxi in front was the cause of this accident. Changing lanes rather than braking in the lane the truck was in caused electric braking and the truck skidding, âobserved Facebook user Glenn See Toh.
âIf it couldn’t be cut and merged smoothly, the red cab probably shouldn’t have. Bloody causes a ton of misery in its wake, âhe added.
âSad that the red car left even though he knows he was the cause of this accident,â Facebook user Lewisz Riebuz said.
“I could not understand why the TP (Traffic Police) allows heavy vehicles to travel on the second lane,” Facebook user Allen Khong noted. However, Internet users have clarified that this class of vehicles was not initially authorized.
According to motorist.sg, it is recommended that vans or commercial vehicles use the third lane or, in other cases, the second lane as long as they do not monopolize the traffic.
Others wished the affected passengers a speedy recovery, especially the motorcyclist who got involved and injured himself after only crossing the highway. / TISG
