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!

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

  • Car sharing Getgo vehicle blatantly ignored the red light and hit a taxi

    A common car-sharing Getgo vehicle gets caught on camera blatantly ignoring the existence of the red traffic light. Strange since this seems like the fundamental essentials of driving theory.  This resulted in the vehicle side sweeping an oncoming taxi and, hitting into it and resulted in debris inconveniently left on the road.  It's extremely fortunate that this blatant disregard for traffic rules did not result in a more severe and damaging accident. It might be wise for Getgo to con



    An accident between a Honda Civic, BMW 520i and a Toyota Corolla makes all three cars perfectly aligned with one another

    This has to be one of the most unique, one-of-a-kind accident you would have ever seen before. The aftermath of the accident might even be meme-worthy. Watch it here: What Happened? The accident occurred at around 7am, at Hougang Avenue 1.  As the morning traffic started forming at a red light, a BMW 520i driver decided to perform an abrupt lane change from lane 1 (go straight/turn right lane) to lane 2 (go straight-only lane).
