According to a report by Lianhe Zaobao, a wheelchair bound old lady crossing the zebra crossing at SGH was knocked down by a taxi driver. The electric wheelchair was damaged and her back suffered injuries. The taxi driver left his contact details but when the old lady called the number, the number was fake and she had been played by the heartless taxi uncle.
This incident happened on 25 March 2017 at around 1pm within SGH near Hospital Driver. Although the Chinese male taxi driver apologised for accidentally hitting her, he left right after checking on her and gave her his contact number.
When the old lady reached home, she realised the pain in her back and arm was becoming unbearable and decided to call the taxi driver only to reach an Indian lady. It was only then she realised she had been played by the taxi driver and she was furious.
The old lady made a police report and hopes the authorities can give her justice.
