BMW driver runs red light and hits a golden retriever – refused to wait for police

The driver of an old BMW ran a red light and hit a dog being walked on a leash, fracturing its ribs. Tammy Tang who reported the incident in her Facebook said, “when the driver got out of the car, he scolded the 2 ladies who were walking Kyla (golden retriever) and accused them of crossing when his light was green.”
A video footage from a taxi-driver who was on the spot though, clearly showed that the traffic lights were in favour of the pedestrians (the incident was captured in the 0.50 second mark of the video).
The driver of the BMW gave the two  who were with the dog his phone number but refused to wait for the police to arrive, saying he has heart problems and felt breathless. He further excused himself saying he had to attend his son’s wedding in Thailand the following day, and so does not want any trouble. He did not provide his driving licence or NRIC, claiming that he did not have them with him.
The driver promised to “pay for everything” as he drove off, but when the police tried to call him to come back to the scene of the accident, his phone was switched-off.
“It’s a police case if someone hits an owned animal,” said Tammy clarifying that she had reported the incident to the neighbourhood police post.
“Kyla has a fractured rib, and has to be kept for observation because physical trauma like this can lead to delayed internal bleeding,” Tammy described the dog’s condition after the accident.
“Apparently we also cannot force him (the BMW driver) to pay for the vet bills. It has to be an agreement between us and the driver,” she added.
Tammy is upset that she has to fork out hundreds of dollars (possibly up to $2000) to treat the golden retriever, while the driver goes scot-free.
