Stomper Yong is appealing for witnesses and information about an accident on the SLE that left his 66-year-old father injured.

In a telephone interview, the Stomper said that his father was hospitalised following the accident and recounted what had happened to him.

Yong told Stomp that his father was riding his motorcycle on the left lane of the SLE after the Mandai exit at around 6.15am yesterday (Jul 22) when he was hit by a car from the back.

Following impact, the Stomper's father was flung forward onto the road. He sustained a fractured collarbone and a broken back, and is currently at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital receiving treatment.

Yong believes the car involved is a Honda Shuttle. Following the accident, the driver stopped the car and alighted to check on the Stomper's father.  Yong does not know much about the driver, but described him to be young.

The Stomper would like to find out more about what happened, and is requesting for those with information or videos of the accident to come forward. He says the details will also help in facilitating accident claims.

Said a police spokesperson in response to a Stomp query:

"On 22 July 2017 at around 6.16am, the police were alerted to an accident involving a car and a motorcycle on the SLE towards the BKE.

"The 66-year-old man was conscious when conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

"Police investigations are ongoing."
