Footage has emerged showing a motorcycle skidding and crashing while driving down the slope towards Funan’s underground car park.

The video, taken from the motorcyclist’s perspective, was shared on social media on May 14, the day of the incident, which also saw several cars crashing into a wall in the same spot due to wet weather conditions.

What images showed

The images showed how the motorcyclist drove into the parking garage, but slipped and fell in the right bend.

It appeared the motorcycle had braked as a stationary white vehicle was in front of it.

The vehicle had apparently previously struck the wall while traveling down a slope and did not continue.
