The mother of the four-year-old girl who was killed last month in a fatal car crash is appealing for witnesses with more information to come forward.
In early October, her daughter Eleanor Tan had been crossing the road with a domestic helper along Bukit Batok Central towards Bukit Batok West Avenue 2, on their way to Bukit Batok MRT station, when a car crashed into them.
Eyewitnesses told reporters then that Eleanor and her helper hit the car’s front windshield upon impact and were catapulted in the air before landing on the car’s rear windshield. The impact was so great that it shattered the glass of the car’s rear windshield – this has raised speculation that the driver was speeding at the time of the accident.
It is also believed that the helper and the child were jaywalking when they were hit, instead of using a nearby overhead pedestrian bridge.
The child was killed as a result of the accident.
Eleanor’s mother, 24-year-old housewife Jacelyn Wong, took to Facebook yesterday and shared photos of the location where the accident occurred. She called for people who witnessed the accident or may possess dashboard camera footage of the incident to “come forward to provide information and let justice be done.”
Wong described “feeling broken,” and wrote online:
