SINGAPORE: Dashboard camera footage of a taxi hitting a young woman has gone viral after it was posted on the Facebook page of All Singapore Stuff.
In the 12-second clip, which was submitted by an anonymous reader and posted on Thursday, the driver makes a right turn at a traffic junction and hits the woman, who is crossing the road as the green man is flashing.
The woman, who is looking at her phone, flies off the hood of the cab on impact and rolls onto the road.
The accident occurred after midnight on April 13 at the junction of Serangoon North Avenue 1 and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they were alerted around 12.40am and dispatched an ambulance to the scene.
An SCDF spokesman said a Chinese woman was conveyed conscious to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, with abrasions to her left hip and right elbow.
The Straits Times understands she is in her late teens or early 20s.
As of Friday evening, the clip had been viewed more than 31,000 times and received more than 800 shares.
Most commenters felt that the girl had the right of way and that the driver should have checked his blind spot. Facebook user Memphis Raynes wrote: "The light was in her favor! Prepare to be revoked of your license, idiot."
Some, however, argued that the girl should not have been checking her phone and should have paid more attention to the road while crossing it.
Facebook user Robin Lim wrote: "Dangerous to be fiddling (with your) phone while crossing road at night or even day time for that matter..."
The All Singapore Stuff editorial team, who declined to reveal the source of the video, said in an e-mail response: "The fault lies (with) the driver mainly but the pedestrian should not have been using her handphone (either)."
A police spokesman said that investigations are ongoing for this incident, but that no arrests had been made so far. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
