A Strides MG 5 Electric accelerates from a slip road and rear ends a Toyota Wish while trying to squeeze its way through traffic

A Strides MG 5 Electric accelerates from a slip road and rear ends a Toyota Wish while trying to squeeze its way through traffic



I have to admit; this has to be either one of the most bizarre or reckless driving I have seen in a long time.

Watch it here:

What Happened?

This unfortunate accident occurred along Brickland Road and involved a Strides MG 5 electric taxi, a Toyota Wish and a van.

It all started when the Strides MG 5 electric taxi emerged from a slip road towards Brickland Road and accelerated at full speed. 


Despite traffic forming at a traffic light up ahead, it did not occur to the Strides taxi driver to slow down.

Instead, the taxi driver decided to swerve to the adjacent lane to avoid rear-ending a lorry but still rear-ended another car, a Toyota Wish. 

During the collision, a van also sustained damages to its rear.

It is not known how many were injured in this accident. 

However, here's wishing all those injured a speedy recovery!

At a closer glance

Initially, it seems like the Strides taxi driver was driving purely recklessly, which resulted in this accident. 

However, after taking a closer glance, I made a rather bizarre observation - The driver's side door abruptly swung open when the MG 5 was emerging out of the slip road (Video timestamp 0:24).


Could this accident be caused by a medical-related complication experienced by the taxi driver? Or was it caused by the incompetency of the taxi driver?

Let me know what you think in the comments below!

The aftermath of the accident looks really bad...


TBH, I highly doubt anyone would intentionally drive like that.


LMAO! And yes, the watermark got to go.

  • A time-wasting and selfish Suzuki Swift driver and passenger duo sends a cam car driver on full tilt

    The following incident is quite a handful, featuring an inconsiderate Suzuki swift driver, the Suzuki's 'guai-lan' passenger and a very angry cam car driver. Watch the it here: What Happened? The incident occurred at an open-air carpark. For some reason, the female Suzuki Swift driver decided to drive out of the parking lot to the middle of the road for her passenger (likely her son) to load groceries into the car.  Just then, the cam car driver that was parked oppo



    BMW 320i performs a reckless overtaking manoeuvre and causes a motorcyclist to skid (or did it?)

    In most cases, a loss of traction is likely to occur when a car negotiates a bend at high speed due to the drastic weight shift in the car's weight distribution. As such, it is never a good idea to negotiate a bend at high speed, let alone overtake at a bend.  However, some drivers still do it regardless, such as this BMW driver:  What Happened? This incident occurred along Lornie Drive. At a bend towards Lornie highway, a BMW 320i performs an aggressive overtak



    Lady driver loses control of car sharing Mazda 3, mounts a kerb and crashes into a metal railing at a carpark

    Over the years, car-sharing drivers have developed a bad reputation (especially the electric vehicle ones. Not going to mention names). Today we have a GetGo Mazda 3 though. Throw in a lady driver into the mix and here is what you will get:  What Happened? This incident occurred at an open-air carpark located in Jurong West. The video above was filmed by a resident staying directly at the block above the carpark. The driver supposedly loses control of a GetGo



    Singaporean Volkswagen GTI driver enters a roundabout at full speed, hits a MPV and scoots off in Johor Bahru

    After 2 long years, we can finally drive into Johor Bahru to do the things we love - pumping cheap petrol, eating delicious food and going for massages. However, not all of us deserve this privilege. Especially for reckless hooligans such as this driver: What Happened? The following incident occurred at a roundabout in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.  A Singaporean Volkswagen Golf GTI was travelling at a fast speed and recklessly cutting lanes as he entered a roundabout
