SINGAPORE - A woman in her 30s was knocked over by a police van along Havelock Road earlier this week.

The woman sustained minor injuries in the accident on Thursday (May 4) night and did not want to be taken to the hospital, the Singapore Civil Defence Force told The Straits Times on Saturday (May 6).

A contributor told citizen journalism site Stomp in a report on Saturday that he had been nearby when he heard a woman scream.

He went to look and saw that a police van had knocked down a female pedestrian.

"A woman in her 30s was assessed with minor injuries. She refused conveyance to hospital," said SCDF.

The police confirmed with ST on Saturday that an accident involving a police van and a pedestrian had occurred at the junction that night.
