VIDEO

A video circulating on social media shows the motorcyclist filtering left from the right-most lane when the bike and the van collided.

It also shows the van cutting two lanes from the right-most lane to the left-most lane of the three-lane expressway after the collision.

The Straits Times understands that the foreign-registered motorcycle was trying to overtake a trailer when the accident occurred.

The trailer had stopped in the middle lane as its driver was trying to retrieve a large metal cage that was on the road.

The police are investigating the accident.
