In the age of social media, viral videos have become a common phenomenon. A 2019 video depicting a Singaporean police car narrowly avoiding a collision only to end up in an accident has resurfaced, this time capturing attention on TikTok.
Originally shared on Facebook in September 2019, the video found a new audience on TikTok when user @watever0001 reposted it on last Thursday, Nov. 30.
The Incident: A Play-by-Play
The video unfolds as the police car navigates the roads near West Coast Park. Waiting behind a large lorry, the vehicle is about to take a left turn onto West Coast Highway.
Motorcycles pass by, and just as the police car begins its turn, a black car emerges from the right, resulting in a tense moment of evasion.
Miraculously, both drivers manage to avoid a collision in the first instance. However, the relief is short-lived as both cars stall momentarily. The attempt to reverse out of the situation proves challenging, leading to a second, albeit less severe, collision.
The incident takes a turn for the worse as both cars start moving forward simultaneously, resulting in a more substantial collision.
The recording car, witnessing the unfolding drama, decides to move backward and away from the escalating situation, ultimately turning onto the third lane.
The second collision, more forceful than the initial near miss, raises concerns about potential damage and consequences for both drivers involved. The impact of the cars colliding is more pronounced, leaving viewers to wonder about the aftermath.
As the recording car retreats, it captures the aftermath of the incident. Turning onto the third lane, it distances itself from the unfolding scene. The aftermath of the collision, though not fully detailed in the video, leaves room for speculation on the extent of the damage and the reactions of those involved.
