A taxi is then seen running the red light and heading right for the pedestrian when a black car coming from the left drives right into the cab's side before it can reach the pedestrian crossing.

A man's voice can be heard saying, "That guy is a goondu," right after the collision.

Netizens have hailed the driver of the black car as a "hero" for accidentally saving the pedestrian's life.

In response to a Stomp media query, the police said they were alerted to the accident at the junction of Jalan Bukit Merah and Henderson Road at about 8.21pm.

"The car passenger, a 61-year-old woman was conscious when conveyed to Singapore General Hospital," a spokesman said.

Police investigations are ongoing.
