The user said that the incident happened just outside De La Salle school along Choa Chu Kang Street 52. He captioned the video “Narrow escape from death!!”

There were several pedestrians in the walkway when the incident happened. A Malay man and a girl seemed shocked by the crash. The girl was seen running away in fear.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) in an effort to minimise road accidents near schools, will be enhancing safety features outside such places of learning. By 2019, more than 170 of the 187 primary schools in Singapore will have flashing lights signalling a reduced speed limit of 40kmh during school arrival and dismissal hours.

A tender to implement the new signs has already been called, and is expected to be awarded in the fourth quarter of 2016. Installation is expected to start in the second quarter of 2017.

LTA reviewed the school zone safety rules after it was heavily criticized following the death of two young brothers who were hit by a truck in Tampines.
