Lim said in her Facebook post: "...A student got knocked down by a car at the zebra crossing and was flung off approx 2.5 metres from the zebra crossing.

"The driver said he didn’t see her as the opposite direction's vehicle lights were very glaring."

Lim added that her daughter suffered a concussion, memory loss and a blood clot in the right side of her brain due to the "hard hit impact", along with a badly swollen right kneecap and bruises on the right side of her body.

Lim is appealing for witnesses or anyone with video footage of the accident to contact her.

She also cautioned road users about the two zebra crossings in Jurong West Street 65, as it is "very dark especially in the night or during a heavy downpour," and reminded everyone to make sure that vehicles have stopped before crossing the road.
