An 18-year-old man has been arrested for causing grievous hurt by a rash act after he crashed into a personal mobility device (PMD) rider while on his e-scooter in Pasir Ris.

It was previously reported that the incident occurred along Pasir Ris Drive 1 on Saturday (March 16), at around 8.20pm.

A video that went viral on Facebook shows Mr Xie Zhi Hao crossing the road on his PMD when the e-scooter rider crashed into him.

According to The New Paper, the 27-year-old sustained a cracked shoulder blade, two broken toes and other injuries.

He was taken to Sengkang General Hospital and was discharged on Sunday afternoon.

Mr Xie, a supermarket worker, was also given eight weeks' medical leave and had already spent close to $3,000 on his treatment, reported Shin Min Daily News.

He alleged that the e-scooterist fled the scene despite attempts by a passer-by to keep him there.

Police investigations are ongoing.
