72-year-old man taken to hospital after sports car runs into him near Lakeside MRT Station

A 72-year-old pedestrian was knocked down by a sports car driver near Lakeside MRT Station yesterday (Nov 23) at 7.23am.

The incident was caught on two videos posted in SG Road Vigilante's Facebook group by Silbert Tan and on SG Kay Poh from contributor Alex Chew.

In the video, it appears that the man was rushing to cross the road as the green man was blinking when the sports car driver made a left turn and knocked him to the ground.

In response to Stomp's media queries, a police spokesman said:

"On Nov 23 at 7.23am, the police were alerted to an accident involving a car and a pedestrian at the junction of Boon Lay Way and Yuan Ching Road.

"A 72-year-old man was conscious when conveyed to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital."
