The driver suddenly changes lanes to the right after seeing traffic slowing down in the lane he is in.

He appears to not see the oncoming motorcyclist and hits him, sending him spinning on his bike on the road.

Another motorcyclist and other drivers are seen stopping to assist the fallen rider.

According to the post, the van driver did a hit-and-run but a netizen who said he witnessed the incident said the van driver later stopped his vehicle further along the expressway.
