Dear all, calling for witnesses and kind Samaritans who helped my mum during an e-scooter hit-and-run accident that just happened.

Incident details as follows. Going to make police report later.

Accident took place at: Outside Blk 538 Amk Ave 5 Lift lobby A
Date: 17 Apr 2018, Tue
Time: 5.25pm
Summary: Mum exited from lift. Turned right to walk towards pick up area. E-scooter knocked her from behind. Both mum and rider fell sprawled onto the ground. Mum cut her nose area, bruises on knee, elbow and ribs. Mum grabbed rider when he tried to run off. Five ITE students were nearby (3 boys 2 girls) then attended to her and bought plaster from downstairs shop. Rider didn’t help at all. Mum grabbed rider to prevent him from escaping but he rode away quickly. Rider seen riding towards common rubbish chute area near Blk 537 and 533 after the accident. Dad gave chase and last saw rider riding towards junction of Ave 3 where Amk Police Station was located.

Description of rider: Wearing helmet. No spectacles. Black and red t-shirt. 3/4 jeans.

The accident took place too fast and everyone was shocked that the rider ran away. Even the students. So looking for help to locate both students and the rider. We have to catch irresponsible people!
