It was earlier reported that police who were on patrol came across the accident along Jurong West Street 41 towards Jurong West Street 42 at about 9.45am.

The pedestrian, who reportedly suffered severe head injuries, was unconscious when taken to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. Her nephew said she might not have noticed the oncoming van while crossing the road due to her poor eyesight.

"A 63-year-old male van driver is assisting with investigations," they added.

Police investigations are ongoing.
