SINGAPORE – A cyclist was reportedly left with fractures on his skull and spine after he was sent flying because the chain from a lorry had latched onto his bike’s handlebar.
According to a Stomp contributor, the driver would not have stopped if not for another motorcyclist who went after the truck to inform him about the accident.
The contributor said he wanted all cyclists to be aware that the chain latch of a truck’s tailgate may pose a hazard when it is left unlatched.
“Gino managed to take the above photo after the accident on Saturday, April 20.
“The truck driver would not have stopped if not for a motorcyclist who went after the truck to inform the driver that he had taken a cyclist down.
“Sadly the truck driver maintained that it was not his fault.
“Gino had almost come to a stop waiting for this truck to turn.
“When it turned the chain latch swung and hooked onto Gino’s bike’s handlebars which sent Gino flying.
“As a result, he has a depressed fracture in his left skull which is impacting his brain.
