SINGAPORE - A jaywalking woman was taken to hospital after she was hit by a motorcycle in Yishun last month.

A video showing the impact surfaced online this week, with netizens both chastising the woman and the other jaywalkers who did not stop to help her.

The accident occurred at 6.14pm on April 25 in Yishun Avenue 2 towards Yishun Ring Road, the police told The Straits Times on Friday (May 25).

"The motorcyclist, a 47-year-old man, and the pedestrian, a 28-year-old woman, were both conscious when taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital," said the police spokesman.

The cars in the video are shown moving at a slow pace, and the woman makes her way across the road by weaving in between the vehicles.

However, a motorcycle appears between the first and second lanes and hits her just as she appears in the motorcyclist's field of vision.

The woman was sent flying and her slippers fell on the road.

There were two other people who were jaywalking as well - one in red saw what happened and turned back initially, while the one in white continues crossing.

Online, netizens berated them for not stopping to help, while others put the blame on the motorcyclist for straddling lanes.

Police investigations are ongoing.
