*Editor’s note (Nov 10 at 1700hrs): This article has been updated to inform readers that the police are investigating it as a case of Rash Act.

If you’re a car owner who doesn’t have a dashboard camera yet, let this video be a reason for you to get one immediately.

Crashed towards stationary car

The video which is posted on Facebook shows a man running towards a moving car in the middle of the road.

Though the car comes to a complete stop a few metres away from the man, he continues to run towards the stationary vehicle and ramming himself into it. He then collapses onto the road.

Another man, a supposed bystander, is later seen coming to the collapsed man’s aid. He seems to have come from the same direction as the crashed man.

The two videos were reportedly taken on Nov. 5, 2017, around 5.45am near Golden Mile Complex.

Why do such a thing?

We are not sure what might have led the man to throw himself onto a stationary vehicle.

But, we do know that similar occurrences have happened in other parts of the world. Take this video for instance.

There was also an incident last year, where an elderly man flung himself onto a car’s hood at Tampines industrial park.
