SINGAPORE - A car allegedly hit from behind by another vehicle at a traffic junction in Tiong Bahru surged up onto the pavement, destroying the bicycle of a cyclist who was waiting at the junction.

The accident involving two cars, a bicycle and a pedestrian occurred at the junction of Alexandra Road and Tiong Bahru Road at around 7.50pm on Tuesday (May 15), the police told The Straits Times.

ST understands that a black BMW had hit a white vehicle in front of it while turning at the junction.

The white vehicle mounted the pavement, wrecking the bicycle of a cyclist who was waiting at the junction.

Photos posted on Facebook show the mangled parts of the bicycle, including its two separated wheels, on the road.

Parts from the bicycle flew off and struck another pedestrian who was also at the junction.

The cyclist, a 30-year-old man, was taken conscious to Singapore General Hospital, police said.
