SEA Games cyclist Dinah Chan in collision with car
Singapore's top female cyclist Dinah Chan was involved in a collision with a car yesterday while training for the upcoming SEA Games.
The 27-year-old was cycling alone along East Coast Park Service Road at around 11am when she collided with a right-turning Mazda 3.
The collision flung her about 3m away, but she landed on a grass patch which cushioned her fall and so did not suffer any broken bones. Her helmet - cracked from the impact - also protected her from serious head injuries.
Nevertheless, she suffered abrasions, a swollen neck and lips, and damaged teeth, and drifted in and out of consciousness. She was put under 24-hour observation at Changi General Hospital.
