A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after an accident with a car in Bukit Merah on Saturday evening (Sept 9).

Stomper Peter, a food delivery rider, alerted Stomp to the accident.

"The rider's bike fell on the road," said the Stomper. "Two police cars and an ambulance were there."

A Tik Tok video shows the motorcycle lying in the middle of the road with a police officer directing traffic as the Singapore Civil Defense Force (SCDF) ambulance arrived.

In response to a Stomp query, SCDF said it was alerted to the accident at about 6:20pm.

A 28-year-old male motorcyclist was conscious when taken to National University Hospital. Another two people were assessed for minor injuries, but they declined to be taken to the hospital, said SCDF.

When contacted by Stomp, the police said they came across the accident involving a car and a motorcycle at Jalan Bukit Merah towards Kampong Bahru at 6.28pm.

A 73-year-old male car driver is assisting with police investigations, which are ongoing.
