GrabFood rider with 5 kids loses income after accident with car at Yishun junction

A 40-year-old woman was taken to hospital after an accident involving her power-assisted bicycle and a car in Yishun on Friday evening (Apr 3).

Responding to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident at the junction of Yishun Street 20 and Yishun Ring Road at 7.39pm.

The 40-year-old female cyclist, identified as Ms Lovinel Tan, was conscious when taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, where she remains warded.

She also posted an appeal for witnesses on Facebook from the hospital and said the incident was a hit-and-run.

Ms Tan, a mother of five children, told Stomp on Tuesday (Apr 7): "I am still in pain. I actually had four days of medical leave but had to go to the polyclinic to extend it.

"It's been so hard for me because I need to work to feed my family. I usually do GrabFood 14 to 18 hours per day, but now I can't even work.

"My e-bike is totally spoiled, installments are still ongoing, bills have to be paid, and I have to give my children (the youngest is only 11 months old) allowance.

"I lost a lot because of this accident and hope there are witnesses who can come forward."

Police investigations are ongoing.
