The incident near Woodlands Avenue 6 and 7 last Saturday was filmed by a camera inside a nearby vehicle. The 12-second clip, which was posted on citizen journalism portal Stomp and has since gone viral, showed the traffic lights turning red.

A woman walking across a pedestrian crossing - with the lights in her favour - was then apparently hit by a motorbike. She was conscious and taken to hospital.

Police said a male motorcyclist in his late 20s was arrested at the scene for dangerous driving. Investigations are ongoing.
