Ang Mo Kio Hit & Run Occurred Near Taxi Stand Outside MRT Station
Those of you who happened to be near the vicinity of Ang Mo Kio MRT station earlier this morning, a netizen is appealing for your help in a hit and run accident.
On Monday (13 May), the netizen, Ms Halim, took to Facebook to appeal for dashcam footage as evidence in the accident near Ang Mo Kio interchange.
Taxi allegedly almost caused a head-on collision
On Monday (13 May) between 7.15am and 7.25am, a hit and run accident occurred along the road in front of the taxi stand along Avenue 8 near Ang Mo Kio MRT station.
The exact location is directly opposite AMK Hub and Centro Residences.
According to Ms Halim, the taxi in front of her filtered out from the leftmost lane near the drop-off stand, all the way to the lane on her right, in just a matter of seconds.
This nearly caused Ms Halim’s car to collide with the taxi, but luckily, she managed to brake in time.
Her sudden braking action almost led to a head-on collision with a small school bus directly behind her.
Fortunately, the school bus quickly swerved left, avoiding what could have been a fatal accident.
Taxi drove off thereafter
The taxi driver allegedly drove off nonchalantly after that, but Ms Halim was able to get a clear picture of the car plate number.
However, the dashcam in her car did not capture footage of the accident as she realised later that there wasn’t a memory card in the camera.
That’s why she posted an appeal for drivers to come forward with any available footage of the accident.
Ongoing appeal for dashcam footage
Ms Halim is now appealing for any witnesses to come forward with video footage of the accident.
If you happen to have any footage which can be used as evidence, do contact Ms Halim via her Facebook post here.
We hope the parties involved will be able to find witnesses soon, and that they are not seriously hurt in the accident.
