Yiling describes what happened:

"This happened on Sep 2 at about 12.30pm, at the Siglap Road area.

"The lady, who seems to be in her 50s, dashed across the road upon seeing the green man flickering to the last few seconds.

"I believe it is due to the blind spot that the pick-up truck driver did not see her crossing the road and hence accelerated.

"The pick-up truck nearly hit the lady."
