In the video, the lorry fails to stop in time and hits the rear of the Honda Vezel in front of it.

However, instead of settling the matter, the driver is seen overtaking the car from the left and beating a red light to drive straight along Tampines Avenue 2.

The back of the Honda appears to be dented following the collision.

Netizens have slammed the driver for dangerous driving and fleeing the scene, adding that he cannot hide as his actions have been caught on video.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the hit-and-run accident involving a lorry, a car, and a taxi at about 1.27am.

Police investigations are ongoing.
