A car and motorcycle was involved in a hit-and-run accident near Chinatown on Friday evening (March 10).

The motorcyclist, Mr Louis Yasushi, posted an Insta360 video of the accident on TikTok, where it has garnered more than 200,000 views.

The video shows that about 25 seconds before the accident, Mr Yasushi, who was carrying a pillion rider, had a near miss with the same car at Bukit Pasor Road.

The car was changing lane and did not see Mr Yasushi at first and almost hit him but stopped just in time. The video also appears to show the car driver giving Mr Yasushi the middle finger.

Mr Yasushi continued riding along Teo Hong Road and was about to turn right at the junction into Eu Tong Sen Street when the car came from behind and sideswiped Mr Yasushi's motorcycle as the car turned right.

Mr Yasushi wrote in the subtitles of the video: "I was lucky enough to anticipate and not drop my bike. Not to mention I have my pillion on with me. You could have potentially killed her."

After hitting the motorcycle, the car drove away along Eu Tong Sen Street towards Chinatown.

Mr Yasushi wrote in the video: "No point chasing him as it will endanger our lives even more. We both are shocked and I called the police after."

He added that he and his pillion rider had "some bruises" on their knees after their "near death experience".

"To all my riders, it's been hard out there, but be careful, brothers and sisters. Regardless, I'm thankful that I didn't drop the bike, but I wish you good luck, driver."
