21-year-old licence-less rider loses control and overturns motorcycle while running away from police


A 21-year-old man was trying to run away from a police car on his motorcycle. However, he lost control of the vehicle, hit the curb and fell to the ground. He managed to get up and escape but was eventually caught by the police after all.

The accident occurred at about 3.30pm on Tuesday (June 25) along Paya Lebar Road towards Macpherson Road, reported Zaobao.

When a reporter from Shin Min Daily News rushed to the scene after receiving the information on Tuesday, he saw three police cars and an ambulance parked on the side of the road. The rider and the vehicle that caused the accident were no longer at the scene.

An employee working at a nearby store who did not want to be named told the reporter that a police car was following the rider when the incident occurred and asked the rider to stop.

“After seeing the police, the motorcyclist sped away and hit the curb in front of the gas station. He got up and tried to escape, but after a while, the police caught up with him and arrested him.”

The staff also revealed the rider had claimed that he was injured, so the police called an ambulance. Later, several police cars were seen arriving at the scene to investigate.

According to photos provided by readers, the rider was riding a black motorcycle registered locally. At least eight police officers arrived at the scene after the incident.
