Helper & Child Knocked Down By Taxi That Beat Red Light At Lorong 1 Geylang

Geylang is known for three things — good food, night entertainment, and bad traffic.

In an unfortunate turn of events on Wednesday (29 Jan), Mr Brian Teo’s young cousin and helper got a taste of the bad traffic while crossing the road near Kallang MRT.

He took to Instagram on Wednesday (29 Jan) appealing for witnesses to step up with footage of the accident.

Appeal for witnesses with video footage

Mr Teo has since lodged a police report.

However, he is now appealing for “witnesses with (footage)” of the accident, presumably to help the police with their investigations.

Additional clips and eyewitnesses would be beneficial in helping the police with the investigation of the accident.

Those with information should contact the police at 6547 0000.

MS News wishes Mr Teo’s helper a speedy recovery. We hope that witnesses would come forward to provide them with footage of the accident.
