Motorcyclist believed to have ran red light & hit her

The motorcyclist, Seet wrote, is believed to be a male riding a small cc (capacity of the engine) Class 2B motorcycle who had apparently ran a red light while on the road.

While Seet says her grandmother does not remember the licence plate number of the motorcycle, the elderly woman said she recalls him stopping to look at her after hitting her before speeding off.

Seet writes that her grandmother is currently warded at Changi General Hospital, and may require an operation to insert a metal plate into her leg.

Anyone who witnessed the accident is requested to contact Seet at +65 8126 9805.
