The road was wet and slippery because of rain.

An e-bike rider was injured after braking suddenly to avoid hitting a car at Upper Paya Lebar Road on Dec 4 at around 1pm.

Stomper Vince said he skidded 50m, resulting in him sustaining injuries on both palms, both elbows, right knee, right hip bone, left ankle and left chest. The left side of his neck ached as well.

He shared photos of the incident, showing his injuries, e-bike and where it happened.

The Stomper recounted: "I was cycling in the direction of the green arrow while this car dashed out from the carpark of Bethany Presbyterian Church (red arrow) at 364A Upper Paya Lebar Road and caused me not to be able to brake in time. The result was I slipped, fell and skidded 50m as indicated by the pink arrow.

"As it was drizzling the road surface was wet and slippery, I wasn’t able to capture the sedan car plate number."

He said he hit the rear of the car as he skidded and the driver saw him.

"He initially wanted to make a U-turn towards Serangoon Central, but he made a sudden change of lane and sped off towards Kensington Square and New Industrial Road."

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to a case of hit-and-run involving a power-assisted bicycle (PAB) and a car along Upper Paya Lebar Road towards Paya Lebar Road.

Police added that a 34-year-old PAB user was conveyed conscious to the hospital and investigations are ongoing.

The Stomper said: "I would appreciate it if Stomp can assist me and the traffic police to find this hit-and-run driver.

"My e-bike is a total loss and I bought a new e-bike to do food delivery again once I have recovered."
