Pickup crashes into motorcycle after lorry driver suddenly cuts into lane

An accident involving a lorry, a pick-up and a motorcycle happened along the Tampines Expressway (TPE) towards the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) after the Punggol Way entrance, on Aug 11, at 6.58am.

A video of the accident was posted on Beh Chia Lor’s Facebook page, which showed the lorry which was travelling on the leftmost lane, suddenly cutting into the lane of the pickup.

This caused the pickup driver to move right in order to avoid a collision, in turn crashing into the motorcycle which was on its right.  

After that, the lorry driver sped up and left.

The incident was captured on the dashboard camera of a passing vehicle. 

An accompanying caption to the footage, the owner of the passing vehicle, Izuan B, wrote:

“The lorry driver was driving on the rightmost lane. 

“He made a reckless lane change into the path of a pickup without signalling. 

“The pickup, in avoiding the collision, hit a motorcyclist at its blindspot. 

“The video shows the motorcyclist hitting the road. 

“I sounded my horn multiple times to warn the driver but he showed no intention to engage with me. 

“He continued on to the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE). 

“All his foreign worker passengers seated behind were aware of his reckless driving.”
