A BMW had allegedly beat a red light at Sumang Walk in Punggol and ran over a 14-year-old schoolboy on 10 October at about 11.20am.
The netizen who posted videos of the aftermath, Vicknkesh Saravanan, shared that he and his wife got down to check on the victim after the accident and a lady who was with the boy, recounted what happened.
The boy was apparently crossing the road when the traffic light was green and signalling for pedestrians to cross when the errant BMW hit him.
The boy hit the car’s windscreen and fell onto the road.
The netizen added that the boy is now fighting for his life and his parents were not there at the time of the incident.
The police also said that a 24-year-old driver has been arrested for dangerous driving causing hurt.
Here is what he said
Me and my wife just encountered an accident in punggol… and we got down to check on the victim and there was an eye witness lady who told us what happened,
A school boy was at a small road junction traffic light with the lady. When the traffic light green man appeared they started crossing and a BMW just hit the boy and the boy hit on the car’s windscreen and fall few steps away, the boy was hurt so badly and he was fighting for his life…
When we pass that road we saw the boy lying on the road and with a big crack on the windscreen of the BMW . The medics were giving him treatment… and he was trying to catch his breath so hardly…. Our heart broke seeing that.
The boy was not in the wrong. He was just crossing on green man… the BMW failed to slow down and beat the traffic light…..
Now the poor boy is fighting for his life… And his parents were not there… how can they take it when they got to know the news…. To them he just went to school like any other day, because of one reckless driver he’s hurt now….
Our heart broken seeing that incident…
I really pray for the boy…
Hope the parents were informed by now.
Guys… please please drive with extra caution
All we can do now is pray for the boy.
