Police are looking into an incident involving a car that collided with a lorry on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) and then failed to stop at the scene.

The car was also caught on camera beating a red light.

Facebook page Roads.sg posted a video of the hit-and-run accident that occurred on the PIE towards Bedok on October 1, at around 11pm.

According to the video caption, the car driver had been speeding, only to lose control at a bend in the road and end up hitting a lorry. The driver then exited the PIE and beat a red light to turn towards Balestier Road.

Netizens have slammed the car driver for being reckless and irresponsible. Some also noted that the roads were wet due to rainy weather, making his behaviour all the more dangerous.

In response to a Stomp query, the police confirm that a report was lodged and are looking into the matter.
