This is the moment an electric scooter rider speeds through a red light at a pedestrian crossing and ploughs into a man on another e-scooter.

The incident took place on Pasir Ris in the island-city state of Singapore just off southern Malaysia, and was filmed by the dash cam of a motorist waiting at the red light.

In the footage uploaded to Facebook and seen nearly 60,000 times, a man on an e-scooter is seen approaching a pedestrian crossing in front of the filming motorist.

In that moment, a young man on another electric scooter whizzes through the red light and smashes into him.

As the traffic lights turn green, the two dazed men sit in the middle of the road in apparent discomfort.

According to local media, the 37-year-old victim was hospitalised in a conscious state.

Meanwhile, the electric scooter rider who ran the red light reportedly fled the scene before the emergency services arrived.

The local police have confirmed that they are investigating the incident.

According to Singapore’s Active Mobility Act, e-scooters, push scooters, hoverboards and other personal transporters are not allowed on the roads.
