SINGAPORE – A motorcyclist was taken to hospital after he was hit by a car turning out from a pick-up point at Changi Airport.
A video and pictures of the accident, posted on Facebook by user Ivy Long, show the motorcyclist zipping along before a white car emerges from the left and hits him.
He is flung from his vehicle and photographed on the floor, bleeding. Emergency personnel is shown at the scene tending to him.
The accident occurred at the pick-up point at Terminal 3 Arrival Hall around 9.30pm on Friday (Aug 11).
The Singapore Civil Defence Force told The Straits Times that it received a call for help at that time and dispatched an ambulance.
The motorcyclist was taken to Changi General Hospital.
Online, netizens speculated about whose fault it was. Some attributed it to the motorcyclist, others to the car driver, while yet others said both were at fault.
Wrote ChengHui Cai on Ms Long’s post on the Singapore Taxi Driver Facebook page: “Rider ride like he’s racing… driver (drove) across Chevron marking = recipe for disaster. Both are at fault.”
Mr Eric Cheong, who said he both drives a car and rides a motorcycle, said he felt it was the motorcyclist’s fault.
The police said they were alerted to the accident involving a car and a motorcycle along 65 Airport Boulevard, Changi Airport T3, at 9.28pm.
