A shocking dashcam video showing a Comfort DelGro taxi plowing into an elderly pedestrian crossing the road has been circulating online.

The elderly male pedestrian had the right of way as he had been crossing the road while the green light signalling him to cross was still on.

The video was posted online by netizen Colin Soh who indicated that the incident occurred last Friday, 10 Nov, around 10.30am at the junction of Choa Chu Kang North 5 and Chua Chu Kang Drive.

In the video, the man can be seen being plowed into and being dragged by the momentum of the taxi before falling to the ground. The man can be seen lying motionless on the road thereafter.
