Stomper Alroy was on board bus service number 145 when the vehicle knocked down a woman at 2.50pm today (Oct 15), along Balestier Road.

The Stomper was passing by Value Hotel at Balestier Road, heading towards Toa Payoh, when the accident occurred.

According to Alroy, the woman, an Indian female who appeared to be in her 40s, was trying to cross the road when she got knocked down by the bus.

"After the ambulance left with the woman, we were told to alight the bus and take another bus," added the Stomper.
