According to AsiaOne, a 54-year-old driver was arrested for causing grievous hurt by negligent driving.

Family informed of accident at 2am

Lianhe Wanbao reports that the teen’s family was only informed of the accident at around 2am, when police came to their house.

The family is from Perak, Malaysia, but lives in Singapore.

 

His elder brother, mother, and grandmother rushed to the hospital, but he never woke up.

Upon seeing the scene, his mum and grandma almost broke down.

But the teen’s elder brother said to let him go peacefully, and so he did.

Family hopes witnesses in Queensway accident will step forward

The teen’s mother told Lianhe Wanbao that even though it’s been a week since the accident, the driver still hasn’t apologised to the family.

They’re also currently looking for witnesses who may have been in the area when the accident occurred.

The family has 2 wishes — that the driver contacts them, and that witnesses will step forward.

May victim rest in peace

In a show of solidarity & compassion, the school which the boy attended managed to raise $12,000 for the family.

Students, teachers, and the principal also turned up at the wake to pay their respects.

It’s always tough to see the untimely demise of a young child with a future ahead of them. Hopefully there’ll be justice and witnesses can step forward to assist.

MS News offers our condolences to the teen’s family and may he rest in peace.
