The incident happened on 20 September at about 4.20pm at a road junction at Teck Whye Avenue, and was captured on the dashcam of a nearby vehicle.

The schoolboy was seen at the start of the video crossing the road once the predestrian traffic light turned green.

A Honda Jazz then failed to give way to the boy when making a right turn and knocked him down, and the driver then alighted from her car to check on the boy and what she had done.

Netizen’s comments

  • Woman is like quickly pulling the boy in and wrapping the episode up like nothing has happened. Hope the TP can look into this and prevent any further mishaps from such reckless driver
  • Boy need further examination to confirm no internal injuries and driver need to face consequences to ensure no repeat.
  • OMG! This should be a police case man. Relevant authority should take action against the driver. Hope the child is fine.
