Another eyewitness who saw car knock down pedestrian reveals more details

Another eyewitness who saw the incident involving a car and a pedestrian along Upper Serangoon on Wednesday morning has revealed more details about the incident.

Madam Juliana Loh, 43, told AsiaOne she was making U-turn when she saw a black Toyota Prius run over a person's arm at Surin Road while turning out onto Upper Serangoon Road.

The car then drove away and did not stop to assist the pedestrian. Another eyewitness who caught the incident on her in-car camera gave chase but did not manage to stop the driver. 

According to Madam Loh, the victim is an elderly woman in her 80s known as Madam Cheah.

"I stopped to help her off the road and sent her to Tan Tock Seng Hospital's Accident & Emergency," said Madam Loh. 

The research manager added that Madam Cheah seemed "very calm" but was "in shock".

"I didn't see if she fell herself or was knocked over. I only saw the back wheel of the car roll over her arm," added Madam Loh, who was sending her two daughters to school when she witnessed the incident. 

Madam Cheah told Madam Loh that she lives in Kovan and was walking home after church when the incident happened at 7.23am. Madam Loh lodged a police report that morning.

Police told AsiaOne that reports were made and a 66-year-old female driver is assisting with investigations.
