BMW 740 beats the red light and drives straight into a traffic light

BMW 740 beats the red light and drives straight into a traffic light



The following accident is a strange one.

Watch it here:

What Happened?

The above video was captured by the cam car's dashcam while approaching a red light signal at West Coast Road.

A BMW 740 drove past the cam car while straddling between lanes 1 and 2 before running the red light at an unusually slow speed.

The BMW crosses the junction while travelling at a bearing towards the centre divider.

Moments later, the BMW mounts the centre divider and takes out an entire traffic light, tilting it at a 45-degree angle. 

At this point, I am starting to wonder about the structural robustness of the BMW sedan after it almost uprooted an entire traffic light.


The Possibilities

Some netizens were speculating that the driver was either driving under the influence of alcohol/substance or driving while distracted (driving while using a mobile phone).

However, judging from the strange way the car was being driven, there is a likelihood that the BMW driver was experiencing a medical emergency which caused the accident. 

Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Here's wishing the BMW driver a speedy recovery from the accident!

The Aftermath

Below are some snippets of the accident scene:


The impact from the collision deployed the airbags of the BMW.



 Netizens' Comments 


From the video, it seems like the cam car driver pulled up along the side of the road to check on the BMW driver tho.




The Mercedes driver should be thanking his lucky stars for not sustaining collateral damage.

  • We (try to) identify all 14 vehicles involved in the massive chain collision on the PIE

    Personally, I strictly employ the 2-second rule, especially during heavy (heavier) traffic and wet weather.  The extra distance and time provided by the 2-second rule will be crucial for you to react accordingly when the car in front of you performs an abrupt brake. Watch what happens when one doesn't leave a safe distance from the car ahead: What Happened? A total of 14 vehicles were involved in 3 clusters of accidents along lane 1 of the PIE, with two clusters bei



    Altis driver gets overtaken by cyclists and attempts to run them down in embarrassment

    I understand that not all drivers and cyclists get along, but isn't it better to give way than to endanger the lives of others when you're in the wrong? https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=271869238455173 On Saturday (March 12) night, two or three cyclists and the cam car driver were cruising down a road in Yishun when they encountered the reckless driver.

    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?
