A video of a traffic accident in which a 17-year-old unlicensed driver driving a rental car killed a 46-year-old single mother of two has emerged online. The accident happened on Saturday (21 May) at about 7.50am along the junction of Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 and Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park 2, towards Upper Thomson Road.
The woman, Lau Lee Kiau was on her way to work, riding pillion on her boyfriend’s motorcycle. Her boyfriend was also injured in the accident along with two elderly people.
The video showed the car driven by the youth mounting the kerb and plowing unto the vehicles that were coming from the other direction.

The deceased, a Singaporean, has a 17-year-old son and a 13-year-old daughter. Her son, Toh Wei Xue, was at his lion dance practice when he received a call from his sister Angela.
He told The New Paper at his mother’s wake: “She said our mother got into a road accident.” The son however did not understand the seriousness of the incident until he got home. He did not even know which hospital his mother was taken to. He called every hospital only to told that his mother was not there.
It was only when he called the Traffic Police that he was told that his mother was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital. Lau’s identity was initially listed as “unknown” which was why her children could not locate her.
“By the time we got there, she was already gone. She didn’t leave any last words. We never got to say goodbye,” the son said.
