While we all might not have a choice to how and when we shall pass on, this 53-year-old man certainly did not expect to be placed in a blue police tent.
The 53-year-old was knocked over by an SMRT taxi driver on Saturday night (Apr 14) around 9pm while he was crossing the road at a traffic junction along Boon Keng Road.
When the paramedics arrived, the victim was lying motionless and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 45-year-old male driver was turning right into Boon Keng Road, towards Towner Road, when he hit the crossing pedestrian and has been arrested for causing death by a negligent act.
Police investigations are ongoing.
