If it’s not been clear, here’s a reminder again: in Singapore, you can run but you can’t hide.
This latest report would illustrate this point.
Driver of 2nd Car That Ran Over E-bike in Maserati Accident Arrested
Last Sunday (5 January 2020), at about 5am, an unfortunate accident happened.
A 69-year-old woman was killed while riding an e-bike in Cantonment Road near Pinnacle @ Duxton. It was reported that she was on an e-bike when she collided with a red Maserati that was going against traffic.
The 25-year-old driver of the sports car was allegedly drunk and was arrested on the spot.
However, another video showed that after the collision, while the victim was lying motionless on the road, a green Honda had appeared out of nowhere and ran over the victim.
You can view the video here, but do note that it is extremely disturbing.
Green Honda Car Towed Away
The driver of the Honda fled the scene after the incident, and the police have towed the car away for investigations.
It’s clear from the images that the Honda is a private-hire vehicle.
However, for about five days, the driver of the car was still at large.
Until Friday (10 January 2020).
Driver of Green Honda Arrested
According to the police, the driver of the car has been arrested since Friday. The person arrested is a 44-year-old woman, and details of her identity haven’t been revealed.
It’s also unknown if she is indeed a private-hire driver.
The woman was arrested for failing to render assistance.
In Singapore, it’s an offence to flee the scene of an accident. The driver is required to stop and render assistance if it results in death or injury to another party: two things that the 44-year-old driver definitely didn’t do.
That could be considered a hit-and-run, and first-time offenders can be fined up to $3,000 or jailed up to 12 months. He or she would also be banned from driving for up to 12 months.
Victim Was a Cancer Fighter
The victim, Ong Soh Boey, was a single mother who was battling cancer. She did several part-time jobs to kill time, and on that fateful day, she was on the way to a provisions shop she ran in Chinatown.
She has been riding a bicycle between home and work for 30 years.
The family intends to pursue legal actions against the two drivers.
