Lady hit by a car after crossing the road on Punggol Way carelessly

A jaywalking pedestrian was injured after a car hit her along Punggol Way on Wednesday (Aug 3).

A video posted by Facebook user Andrew Ng shows the woman being hit by a car when she was crossing the first lane of the road.

In the video, she was seen crossing the lane without first checking for oncoming traffic from her right. She landed about a metre away from the car after getting hit.

The driver of the car involved in the accident as well as other motorists and pedestrians were seen providing aid to the victim.

The Singapore Police Force said they received a call at 6.37pm on Wednesday regarding an accident along Punggol Way towards Seletar North Link.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they dispatched one ambulance to the scene where a 60-year-old woman was found. She was in a conscious state and was conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

Facebook users who commented on the video were quick to slam the pedestrian, calling her irresponsible and complacent for not checking for oncoming traffic properly.

Police investigations are currently ongoing.
