My name is Ophelia Wong and I am a student of Bukit View Secondary. This report serves to provide my account of a road accident that I had witnessed a day ago. On Friday, 30th January 2011, at around 7.00am, I witnessed a collision between a car and a van. This happened at a traffic light along Bukit Batok Street 11, near Princess Elizabeth Primary School.I was on my way to school when I witnessed the accident. I left home at around 6.50am that particular morning. It was raining then and the ground was wet and slippery.
As I made my way to the bus-stop, I noticed a man in a van by the side of the road. He was talking on his handphone. A few seconds later, without putting his handphone down, the driver sped off. Due to the slippery road condition, the van then skidded when it was a couple of metres ahead me. I heard the screeching sound of brakes before I witnessed the van veering onto the path of a car which was travelling in the opposite direction. Both vehicles then met a violent collision.
Both drivers were injured in the crash. A few passers-by who were at the scene of the accident rushed to their aid. One of them even administered CPR to the driver of the car. Both vehicles were badly mangled and the driver of the van was trapped inside the wreckage. I called both the ambulance and the Civil Defence, but could not wait for their arrival as I was already late for school.
The van was a white Toyota (SDZ 5673 E) while the car was a red Honda (SCE 9807 X). From what I have witnessed, I believe that the driver of the van was at fault. His irresponsible use of his handphone while driving may have contributed to the accident.
I verify that the above information is true and I hope that this report will assist you in your investigation.
