Paramedics from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) were seen conversing with some people in the video.

A middle-aged man in a blue and white polo tee was describing what transpired after the collision while gesturing at the truck.

According to the man in polo tee, the PMD rider had said that he felt "very hot".

The man then asked if he was feeling okay, and if he was alright with being carried.

When the PMD rider agreed, the man carried him away from the truck.

According to Roads.sg, the PMD rider allegedly sustained light injuries and was sent to the hospital afterwards.
