A motorcyclist and his wife were injured after they were flung in the air during a collision with a car on Sunday morning.

The accident occurred as a car in front of the motorcycle was changing lanes on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) towards the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) at around 11.30am.

The motorcyclist, 35, was unable to brake in time and collided into the rear of the car, Chinese-language daily Lianhe Wanbao reported yesterday.

He managed to get up to check on his wife, also 35, who complained about her back hurting, Wanbao reported.

The accident was captured by the in-vehicle camera of a car behind them.
