Graphic videos of the accident circulating online show two riders flung off their green motorcycle after they crashed into a stationary white sedan on the highway. The boot of the car was open, with the hazard lights on.

In one of the videos, the pillion rider is shown being flung into the air and landing several metres away from the car.

The crash happened on Monday on the first lane of SLE before the Lentor Avenue exit. The 24-year-old motorcyclist and his 21-year-old pillion rider were conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital unconscious, the police told The Straits Times. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) added that they suffered from leg injuries.

SCDF said they dispatched two ambulances to the scene.

Manster Wirman, 36, a sideloader operator at Jurong port, said he was on his way to Johor Baru with his family when he noticed the stationary Audi on the rightmost lane.

"While checking the left mirror, I heard a loud bang... We were shocked and my wife cried.

"I helped in clearing the obstacles on the road but dared not touch (one of the injured riders) in case I injured him further," he said

Police investigations are ongoing.  – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
