Readers calls TNP hotline after seeing road accidents
When Mr Patrick Loh crossed the overhead bridge at Khatib MRT station to walk home at around 3pmlast Sunday, he noticed a commotion on the road below.
He froze when he saw a blue police tent.
"I knew that someone had died," said Mr Loh, 64.
An accident involving a minibus, a motorcycle and a car had occurred at around 2.30pm on Yishun Avenue 2, killing a motorcyclist in his 60s and injuring his pillion rider, a woman also in her 60s. The woman died from her injuries three days later.
"As Christian man, I value life and it made me sad to see it gone like that," said Mr Loh, who is a fan of The New Paper (TNP).
Mr Loh's story was published on July 20.
Another TNP reader, Mr Jeffrey Tan Siew Ming, 38, called about an incident that happened at about 11.40am on Tuesday on Upper Thomson Road towards Lornie Road.
An excavator that was being carried on a lorry hit an overhead bridge, sending debris from the bridge falling onto the back of the truck.
The impact broke off a chunk of the bridge and left scratches underneath it. Mr Tan was driving behind the lorry at the time.
He called TNP because he felt the accident had been preventable.
He added: "If there had been pedestrians on the bridge at the time, they could have been seriously injured."
