A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after an accident with a taxi at Bukit Timah Road on Jan 11.

The taxi driver is assisting with police investigations.

Stomper Sin, who witnessed the accident, said it happened near KK Women's and Children's Hospital at 1.20pm.

"I was driving along Bukit Timah Road about to turn right into the Central Expressway when I saw the motorcycle and SMRT taxi get into an accident," recounted Mr Sin, who is a cabby with ComfortDelgro.

"The motorcyclist was lying on the road. His leg and nose had blood coming out. I quickly made a U-turn."

Being a trained community first responder, Mr Sin grabbed the first-aid kit and water from his vehicle and approached the casualty.

"The first thing I did was ask him, 'Are you okay, sir?' He responded okay, but his leg was in pain. I immediately called 999 and 995 for the police and ambulance," said Mr Sin, who shared photos of the scene.

"When the ambulance arrived, I updated them on the motorcycle rider and what happened. I also updated the police."

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force said it conveyed one person to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

When contacted by Stomp, the police said they were alerted at 1.21pm to an accident involving a motorcycle and a taxi along Bukit Timah Road towards Sungei Road after Cavenagh Road.

"A 36-year-old male motorcyclist was conveyed conscious to the hospital. A 67-year-old male taxi driver is assisting with police investigations," said police, adding that investigations are ongoing.
