MBS valet captain, 69, in hospital after being hit by taxi

A Marina Bay Sands (MBS) valet captain was hit by a taxi on Saturday afternoon (Sept 24).

In a video sent to citizen journalism website Stomp, the 69-year-old man is seen walking on a driveway as the red Trans-Cab taxi approaches.

He tries to evade it, but it sends him flying before it hits a pillar.

 

 

Both he and the 52-year-old taxi driver were taken to Singapore General Hospital, the police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force said.

An MBS spokesman said the man had been on duty at the time, adding: “He is being treated in hospital. We are rendering assistance to him and his family... and are helping the authorities in their investigations.”

The Straits Times reported that the police and the SCDF received calls at around 1.30pm about the incident.

When contacted by ST about the accident, Trans-Cab said it was investigating.
