A motorcyclist was taken to hospital on Tuesday after an accident involving a motorcycle and a taxi on Tanjong Rhu Road towards Meyer Road.

In a video posted on Facebook group SG Road Vigilante, the motorcyclist can be seen turning right when a yellow ComfortDelGro taxi collides into him.

The impact flings him into the air before he lands on the road, almost on his head. The man attempts to stand up soon after.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force and police said they were alerted to the accident at 5.35pm on Tuesday.

A 26-year-old man was conscious when taken to Raffles Hospital.

Police investigations are ongoing.

In response to queries, Ms Tammy Tan, group chief corporate affairs officer at ComfortDelGro, said the company is trying to contact the motorcyclist to provide assistance, and that it is assisting the police in their investigations.

There were no passengers on board the taxi at the time of the accident, and the driver was not injured, she added.
