Two bikes carrying a pair of Rapid Deployment Troops from the Singapore Police Force each crashed into one another on the Pan-Island Expressway towards Changi near the Eunos exit yesterday, 10 March.

Rapid Deployment Troops are a part of the Singapore Police Force’s elite Special Operations Command unit. Personnel who are part of the Troops support Emergency Response Teams and Land Division police officers during terrorist-related incidents here. Such personnel make use of Tactical Response Motorcycles to quickly weave between vehicles to reach incident sites as soon as possible.

In a dashboard camera footage of the accident yesterday, two such motorbikes can be seen knocking into one another. Both bikes and the four officers could have been run over by oncoming traffic if the driver behind them did not brake in time:

This is not the first time personnel from the Rapid Deployment Troops took a tumble on Singapore roads. Just late last month, on 25 Feb, two officers fell off the bike when their bike stopped at a traffic light along Orchard Boulevard:

UPDATE: The Police have revealed in a statement that two of the officers involved in the crash on 10 March have sustained minor injuries: “We would like to thank the public for their concern. Two police officers sustained light injuries and have received outpatient treatment. No other persons were injured.”
