PETALING JAYA: A video recorded on Tuesday afternoon of a car crashing into a motorbike at a busy Pandan Indah T-junction has gone viral.

The 81-second-video taken from a dashboard camera at 4.25pm was posted by 26-year-old Ng Sin Ji on Facebook and has received 3,906 shares as of press time.

It shows a white Perodua Alza crashing into a motorcycle at the junction.

The Alza can be seen driving into the left side of the motorbike, sending the motorcyclist flying into the air before he lands on the road.

He was then seen lying motionless on the ground as others are seen rushing to help him.

Ng and her sister-in-law who were in the car can be heard shouting in shock as the crash happened in front of them.

When contacted, 26-year-old Ng told The Star Online that the car was racing to beat the orange light before it turned red.

At the same time, the motorcyclist is also seen waiting in the yellow box and then crossing left just as the lights changed.

"It’s hard to tell who is right or wrong as they both made a mistake by not following the traffic light," Ng said.

Ng, a human resources manager, added that the driver of the Alza came down to check on the motorcyclist.

"The motorcyclist was on the ground and couldn’t move," she added.

When asked about the Jan 1, 2013, date stamp in the right corner of the video, Ng said that it is the default date that the dashboard camera resets to each time she switches it off.

Meanwhile, Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Hamzah Elias said that police have yet to receive any police report on the incident.

"I've done checks at Ampang Hospital, and there might be a case similar to the one in the video. However, we have not received any report," he said.
