A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after an accident with a car with 'L' plates at the junction of Woodlands Avenue 4 and Woodlands Avenue 9 on Monday afternoon (Sep 16).

Stomper Richard alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos he took as he was walking past the scene.

"A guy was seen lying down on the road and being attended to by paramedics," said the Stomper.

Stomper Ah Boy also alerted Stomp to a photo taken at the scene that was posted on Facebook.

In the photos, the motorcycle is seen lying on its side on the road and the front side door of the black vehicle is badly dented.

Debris is scattered on the ground.

The 'L' plates attached to the back of the car are typically used when a driving student is behind the wheel during driving lessons or tests, under the supervision of a licensed driving instructor.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the incident at about 3.15pm.

The motorcyclist, a 24-year-old man, was conscious when taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, a police spokesman said.

Police investigations are ongoing.
