SINGAPORE - The police are investigating an accident captured in a viral video, where a woman was hit by a car turning right while she was crossing a traffic junction.

A clip on Facebook page Roads.Sg shows the woman first waiting at the junction, and then crossing the road when the lights turn green in her favour.

Before she can reach the middle of the road, however, a black Mercedes-Benz turning right hits her.

The sound of the impact can be heard in the clip. A person who appears to be the driver of the vehicle whose dash cam captured the footage is seen rushing over to help.
