61-Year-Old Woman Passes Away After Ang Mo Kio Accident, Taxi Driver Arrested

61-Year-Old Woman Passes Away After Accident Along Ang Mo Kio Street 21

UPDATE (22 Jun): The Straits Times reports that the 61-year-old victim was hit by several vehicles, including a Tower Transit bus and a Trans-Cab taxi — it remains unclear which vehicle had collided with the woman first.

However, only the Trans-Cab driver remained at the site of the accident.

While alertness on the road is important at all times, it’s especially so at night, when visibility may be lower.

Late last night (20 Jun), a 61-year-old woman met with a fatal accident while crossing a road in Ang Mo Kio.

The victim, a 61-year-old lady, was reportedly crossing the road when a taxi ran her over and dragged her for 20 metres.

After the collision, the taxi driver allegedly left the scene and returned afterwards.

When Shin Min Daily reporters arrived, they claimed that a blue tent had already been erected on the road.

 

Nearby laid a pool of blood with a red Trans-cab parked not far from it.

In response to MS News’ queries, an SCDF spokesperson said they were alerted to the accident at about 10.25pm on Monday (20 Jun).

Separately, a 53-year-old taxi driver was arrested for negligent driving causing death. Police investigations are currently ongoing.
