The police were alerted to the case at about 6pm, around Block 151, Bedok Reservoir Road.

It was understood that the woman was hit by an e-scooter after she came down the overhead bridge.

She was hit from the back, it sent her flying and was knocked unconscious.

When Ms Goh woke up, she realized she was in an ambulance rushing to Changi General Hospital.

Including Ms Goh’s incident, there were a total of more than 150 cases and counting, from Jan 2017 to Feb 2018, of e-scooters riders causing hurt due to negligence riding.

The government had legislation set out to crack down reckless riders.

The legislation enforces that the electric scooters met the three requirements, maximum weight of 20kg, top speed of no more than 25km/h, and width of not more than 70cm.

The process will start by the second half of 2018.
