She was riding an unregistered PMD on a footpath and was trying to evade an enforcement officer who had spotted her by speeding away, before hitting a boy at a bus stop.

The girl then continued riding the PMD on the way to her boyfriend’s home before getting arrested later that same day (30 October 2020).

The boy who was struck cannot be identified due to a gag order on his identity.

What happened?

The incident happened on a footpath along Hougang Street 91 on 30 October 2020, and LTA enforcement officers were on the lookout for errant PMD users at around 7am when they spotted Jin riding her PMD on the footpath.

The two officers then followed her in a van, with one of the officers alighting and walking towards her and showing her his LTA pass and instructing her to alight from her PMD.

Jin then sped away instead.

The boy was with his mother waiting at a bus stop at Hougang Street 93 when Jin was riding towards them at around 7.10am.

She didn’t keep a proper lookout and hit the victim’s right arm and hand, and the boy then bent forward and started crying.

He was unable to bend the fingers on his right hand because of the injury caused by the collision.

The boy was then conveyed in an ambulance to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital after the police were alerted and he was found with a bruised right shoulder as well and given one day’s MC.

At the same time, Jin was continuing riding her PMD to her boyfriend’s home, and she was subsequently arrested.

She was later revealed to have been riding a PMD that was unregistered.

Jin is expected to be sentenced sometime in March and she is facing a jail term of up to 6 months and a fine of up to $2,500 for causing hurt to another person by performing a negligent act.
