Stomper Jelinda is appealing for witnesses after another motorcyclist swerved and knocked into her father's motorcycle, causing him to fall off his bike along the Seletar Expressway.

The incident happened on Oct 3 at around 9am. In a Facebook post yesterday, she shared dashcam footage along with pictures of the accident.

In the video attached to the post, a KTM motorcyclist with his leg outstretched can be seen knocking into his dad, causing him to fall off his bike while the car behind her father runs over the bike. The motorcyclist responsible for the accident sped off. The video then cuts off.

Jelinda mentioned in her post that the motorcyclist allegedly 'kicked' his father off the bike. "Look at the right side of the video, if you see from the computer, you’re able to see the rider extend his leg to kick my dad’s bike that's why he didn't fall and can just speed off."

Her father was badly injured as a result.

She wrote: "My dad got his ribs and also shoulder fractured. With many abrasions and stitches on his philtrum (the middle area of the upper lip) and chin, infections caused by the fractured (toe)." 

In a telephone interview with Stomp she said, "My father is currently recovering in the hospital. (I) don't know when he will be discharged."

She also confirmed with Stomp that the car that also ran his father's bike over did not stop to help his father and just continued on "as though nothing had happened".

Lastly, she appealed for witnesses to the accident in her post.

"Asking for more witness or anyone who is able to help to identify the rider with the pillion (KTM) who hit my dad or another way he actually kicked my dad’s bike? Also, the car on the second lane who just go over my dad’s bike and drove away too."

A police spokesperson told Stomp, "On 3 October 2017 at 7.05am, the police were alerted to an accident involving two motorcycles along SLE towards BKE. A 48-year-old male motorcyclist was conscious when conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat hospital. Police investigations are ongoing."
