The teenager has reportedly been taken to the hospital following the crash. The police confirmed that the accident occurred Ubi Road 1, towards Airport Road, around 2.47pm yesterday. It added that the victim is a 16-year-old who has been conveyed to Changi General Hospital.

Facebook user, Lindy Sim, who shared the dashboard camera footage capturing the accident on social media noted that the car that struck the girl did not flee from the scene but parked in front of the taxi seen in the video, to presumably help the girl.

Sim, whose video has garnered over 90,000 views since it was shared yesterday, cautioned netizens to be more careful when crossing the road.

Another video that has been uploaded online shows multiple views of the accident. The video shows passers-by moving the girl to a nearby grass patch following the accident.

Netizens responding to the videos seemed to be more upset that the girl was moved after the accident, than about the accident itself:
