An SBS Transit bus abruptly ploughed into four motorcycles along Pasir Panjang Road towards West Coast Road while the traffic light was red, last Thursday.
A video of the terrifying incident was released on Facebook today. In it, the service 10 bus can be seen waiting along with other vehicles at a junction before suddenly running over four motorbikes in front of it and rushing ahead. The traffic light was red throughout the incident.
Although some motorcyclists managed to jump out of the way, two motorcyclists and a pillion rider were injured and conveyed to National University Hospital. A car driver can be seen parking at the traffic light and rushing to assist the injured in the video.
