A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after colliding with a car with “L” plates at the junction of Woodlands Avenue 4 and Woodlands Avenue 9 on Monday (September 16).

Pictures circulating on social media show a black motorcycle lying on its side on the road beside a black car which has a front side door that is badly dented. The front of the motorcycle looks to be mangled.

The glass windows of the car’s front doors seem to be broken, and debris can be seen on the road.

There are also two “L” plates attached to the back of the car.

These plates are typically used when a driving student is behind the wheel during driving lessons, under the supervision of a licensed driving instructor.

Netizens who shared a photo of the incident to popular Facebook page All Singapore Stuff claim that the driver of the black car was in the middle of their practical driving (TP) test.

However, typically when one takes their TP test, along with their “L” plates, they also have another sign that indicates the driver is under conditions of a test.

According to a Straits Times report, the police said they were alerted to an accident involving the car and motorcycle at 3.15pm.

The motorcyclist, a 24-year-old man, was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital after the accident.

The authorities could not confirm who was in the car or who was at the wheel of the car during the accident. -/TISG
