SINGAPORE - A 40-year-old food delivery rider was taken to hospital after he was injured in a hit-and-run accident in Bukit Panjang on Friday (Dec 20).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and police said they responded to a road traffic accident in Petir Road at 8.11pm.

The victim was found conscious with a fractured left arm and taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital in an SCDF ambulance, SCDF said.

The accident involved a car and a motorcycle at the juncture of Gangsa Road and Petir Road, the police added.

The 43-year-old driver was arrested for drink driving.

An ST reader who did not wish to be named said he saw a pink-coloured food delivery bag lying close to the scene.

Among the key food delivery firms here, Foodpanda is the only one that uses pink-coloured delivery bags, with GrabFood using green-coloured bags and Deliveroo using blue-coloured bags.
