SINGAPORE - A 38-year-old woman who was taken unconscious to hospital after she was hit by a bus in Sengkang on Friday (Nov 17) afternoon has died.

She leaves behind a husband and two sons - aged one and three.

Ms Huang Luyang is believed to have been crossing the road at the time of the accident, although it is unclear if she was using a pedestrian crossing. The Straits Times understands that she was trapped under an SBS Transit bus.

She was taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, which was alerted to be on standby to receive her.

In an update on Saturday, the police said she was pronounced dead earlier that day. ST understands she died at around 3.40am.

Ms Huang, a cashier, was on her way to work when the accident occurred, Shin Min Daily News reported on Saturday.

The accident occurred at the junction of Anchorvale Road and Sengkang East Way - near the Sengkang Sports and Recreation Centre - around 2.40pm, the Singapore Civil Defence Force told ST on Friday.

Photos circulated in online chat groups showed the SBS Transit bus parked along the side of the road. Several people, including SCDF personnel, were seen crowding around the back of the bus.

Ms Tammy Tan, senior vice-president of corporate communications at SBS Transit, said the bus operator was very sorry and very sad that the accident had occurred.

"Our top priority is to assist the family as best we can in this very difficult time. We are meanwhile assisting the police with their investigations," she told ST on Saturday.

Police investigations are ongoing.
