Posted by temasektimes on April 9, 2012
Barely more than a week has passed since the tragic accident at Sengkang in which a SBS Transit bus driven by a PRC national ran over a 66 year old woman killing her on the spot, another accident has occurred again involving a bus.
A SMRT bus mowed down a boy from a neighborhood primary school as he was crossing a road junction in Woodlands this afternoon.
According to eye-witnesses, the bus was making a left turn at the junction when it knocked the boy down. It is not known if the ‘green man’ was flashing at that time.
An ambulance arrived minutes later and the boy has been sent to the hospital. The nationality of the driver is not certain at this moment in time.
As of now, there are no reports on the accident by the mainstream media yet.
The boy has been admitted to KK Women and Children’s Hospital and was diagnosed to have a fracture in his right ankle as a result of the accident. The bus driver has been suspended by SMRT.
