A 27-year-old man was injured in an accident involving two personal mobility devices (PMD) in Pasir Ris on Saturday night (March 16).

In the video, a man can be seen crossing the road on his PMD, which looks like a bicycle. The traffic light was blinking green in his favour.

A photo posted by Mr Chiang shows two men sitting on the road after the collision.

Mr Chiang told Stomp: "The PMD rider was in shock and fractured his leg."

Responding to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident involving an e-scooter and a PMD at 8.21pm.
