Singapore – The driver of a silver-coloured car has been recorded on dashcam as going over chevron markings on the road to turn left into a slip road but then turning back across the markings to continue in the original direction.

However, by suddenly steering to the right again, the driver appears to have sideswiped a FoodPanda delivery rider behind the car, causing him to fall off his motorcycle.

On Sunday (Sept 13), Facebook page – SGRV uploaded a video of the accident near the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) (Changi Airport)/Upper Serangoon Road exit of the Central Expressway ().

The dashcam footage continues with the food delivery rider getting up from the road, apologising to the driver behind him, whose dashcam recorded the accident, before limping back to his motorcycle. By then, the silver-coloured vehicle was nowhere in sight.
