Man Allegedly Jumped Out of Moving PHV Car During Argument With Wife

Latest Articles

It’s bad enough having to drive while a couple argue loudly in your car. But having a man literally jump out of your car? That’s a whole other headache altogether.

A 28-year-old man jumped out of a moving car, and tried to run away before the police came. Here’s what happened.

Couple was Arguing, Man Suddenly Jumped Out

A post in the Professional PHV Drivers Facebook group stated: “Passenger jumped out of my moving car after fighting with his wife . What a spoiled day !!! Grrrrrr.”

Speaking to AsiaOne, the private hire vehicle’s owner, Sidhu, shared that he picked up a couple and a child from River Valley road.

While driving along Cluny Road, the couple was having their own conversation in Chinese when the man suddenly jumped out of the moving car.

Startled, Sidhu immediately stopped the car and came out to see if the man was okay. However, the man was still trying to run away, even though he was bleeding from his arm and leg.

His wife chased after him and the couple was still shouting at each other. Sindhu then called the police, who came and took the couple’s statements.

Police Sent Man to Hospital, Referred to IMH

The police has confirmed that they received a call for help along Cluny Road at about 8:55am on 23 July.

They conveyed a 28-year-old man to the hospital, and was then arrested under Section 7(1) of the Mental Health Act 2008. He was referred to the Institute of Mental Health for psychiatric assessment.

Under that Act, the police can arrest anyone that is believed to be dangerous to themselves and/or others.

Driver: Man’s Actions Could Have Caused Another Accident

Sindhu felt that it was really selfish of the man to jump out of the moving car, especially since the shock could have led the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

Also, if there was oncoming traffic, or if the man landed on his head instead, the consequences would be much more dire.

Please, the next time you argue with someone in a car, at least wait till the car has stopped to get out, OK?
