Looking for eye witness or dash camera footage regarding my accident on the 10th of October 2019, 3.30 am at ang mo Kio Ave 3.
SBW3922A honda civic crx

I was making a right turn in the only right turning lane at ang mo Kio ave 3 from CTE towards ang mo Kio ave 10 when a red mart van, which was on one lane to my left, collided into the left of my car. Right upon impact, he reversed & made a u-turn to the opposite lane.
Although I was still in shocked, slight pain and discomfort, I panicked to the thought that the driver was going to hit and run hence rushing out of my vehicle and taking out my phone to capture his vehicle & plate number. He stopped and alighted after I raised my phone towards his van. When he alighted he apologized and said he was looking at the GPS & GPS told him to make a U-turn there and then.
I told him that apology is not needed & if he’d want to wait for the TP to come but he insisted on being in a rush hence I requested his driving license, id & phone number.
After he left i “Whatsapp” him the pictures I took & asking him how he’d want to settle this issue & he briefly asked if there’s any footage on my end and said that the vehicle belongs to his company, he has the front dashcam footage and speed tracker on his van & only his company can make the decision.
The following day his in-charge, Ray, from red mart contacted me and hope to have a private settlement. I went to a workshop to get a roughly estimated quotation for the repair works and informed Ray the price but Ray told me that he’d have to talk to his driver first. After a few hours, I and Ray agreed to go by insurance. I then went to make an accident report and told Ray to remind his driver to do so too.
To my surprise, the red mart driver made a false report stating that I sideswiped him from his right while making a right turn.
As of now, because of his false report, my workshop is unable to proceed with certain parts replacement & I was told that I’ve to bear certain cost to the repair which I have 0% fault in.
*Requested dash camera footage, which driver said he had, from driver & “Ray” from red mart but to no avail.
I hope I’m able to find a witness or footage through this post to help speed up my claim process due to lies made from the other party.
