Darren told Stomp that he was in a rush to attend to personal matters but returned to the scene about 15 minutes later.

"I spoke to someone there who passed me the rider's number," said the Stomper.

"When I called the rider, he told me that the driver of the car argued that he was not at fault and that he had checked his blind spot while turning."

Darren said that he wants to help the rider gather witnesses of the incident.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said that they were alerted to an accident involving a car and a motorcycle at the junction at 8.40pm.

The motorcyclist, a 28-year-old man, was conscious when conveyed to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

Police investigations are ongoing.
