An 11-year-old student was severely injured after a motorcycle collided into him while he was crossing the road near a school at Senggarang, Batu Pahat around 7am on Tuesday (Aug 16).
The incident was first captured by a dashcam attached to the rear of a car and was later uploaded to TikTok.
Told by guard to cross
In the 1-minute clip, it showed the student waiting patiently by the roadside as several cars passed by.
After several seconds, the light turns green and a school guard standing on the other side of the road signals to the student to cross.
Barely after the student took a few steps forward, a motorcycle suddenly appeared and rammed into him, sending both parties sprawling across the road.
