Police seeking witnesses to e-scooter accident that hurt 4-year-old girl near Marina Bay Sands

SINGAPORE - Police are seeking witnesses to an e-scooter accident that injured a young girl near Marina Bay Sands.

Police said it was alerted to the incident at 11 Bayfront Avenue on Sunday (Sept 25) at 10.25pm.

A four-year-old child was found injured, and taken to KK Women's and Children's Hospital.

Police urged anyone with more information about the incident to come forward.

They can lodge a police report at any neighbourhood police centre or police post. They can also submit their report online at www.police.gov.sg/e-services or at www.police.gov.sg/i-witness.

Last week, a video of a e-scooter rider over taking a bus at Mandai Road sparked concern about dangerous scootering practices among members of the public.

Two weeks ago, housewife Ang Liu Kiow, 53, was allegedly knocked down in an accident involving an e-scooter at Pasir Ris.

She underwent two brain surgeries at Changi General Hospital, and was on life support, reports last week said.

A 17-year-old has been arrested in connection with that accident, on suspicion of causing grievous hurt.
