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.

    Oh no! With another day in Singapore, yet another unfortunate traffic incident... This time, taking place at this West Coast junction.  From here, we see a police car parked behind the trailer that is lying helplessly on its side as the surrounding traffic mills past, keeping a wide berth away from the accident area, cordoned off by orange cones. 291181420_1089185911999828_7590787707057688719_n.mp4 The trailer cuts a rather lonely, hulking silhouette with the space around it.
