A 67-year-old motorcyclist was injured after crashing into a metal chassis at the rear of a cargo vehicle along Changi South Avenue 2 yesterday (Aug 19) at around 9.46pm.

Stomper Firdaus was driving in the area when he came across what happened.

In a telephone interview, he told Stomp that he first saw the motorcyclist travelling on the opposite side of the road.

The 67-year-old then rode into the rear of the chassis and fell onto the road.

The Stomper thinks that the motorcyclist's head hit a metal beam during the crash judging from the shape of the chassis.

He added that the area was quite well lit, and believes that the truck was not illegally parked as there were markings on the road.

Photos the Stomper took show blood trickling down the motorcyclist's face onto the road.

After seeing what happened, Firdaus called the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF). Paramedics arrived around 10 minutes later to render assistance.

Said a police spokesman in response to a Stomp query:

"On 19 August 2017, at 9.46pm, the police were alerted to an accident involving a motorcycle and a chassis along Changi South Avenue 2 towards Changi South Avenue 1. 

"The 67-year-old male motorcyclist was conscious when conveyed to Changi General Hospital.

"Police investigations are ongoing."
