A 67-year-old woman was taken to hospital after she was knocked down by a van along Jurong West Avenue 1 on Saturday afternoon (July 31).

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to an accident involving a van and a pedestrian at 12.03pm.

The pedestrian was conscious when taken to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

Stompers Sam and Freddie alerted Stomp to a video of the accident that has been circulating on social media.

In the video, the pedestrian can be seen jaywalking across the road with one hand raised.

Halfway through, she starts to pick up pace and dashes across the road — only to get hit by an oncoming van.

The impact sends the woman falling onto the road, with her back lying flat.

Witnesses can be heard screaming as the scene unfolded.

Police are investigating the incident.
