An 86-year-old man was taken to hospital after he was hit by a taxi at the junction of Choa Chu Kang North 5 and Choa Chu Kang Drive at around 10.30am on Nov 10.

The man was crossing the road while the green man light was showing.

A video of the accident was posted on Roads.sg's Facebook page, showing the taxi making a right turn and hitting the elderly man.

The man is seen lying on the road and the taxi driver pulls over to the left.

In response to media queries, the police said that the 86-year-old man was taken conscious to hospital and that police investigations are ongoing.

Most horrible accidents happened at greenman, some body torn apart! It is actually the most dangerous spot as you thought the cars will stop. Big Mistake!

Now, I cross when there are no cars and not wait for cars or greenman.

These kind of junction crossing is the most dangerous, esp if the driver is rushing. The taxi driver's attention is to his left on the on-coming vehicles. If there is none, he will just floor the accelerator- no time for you to run out of the way even if you are Usain Bolt.

If I see a vehicle waiting to turn and there is no stream of on-coming vehicles to help me create an impassible wall, I will raise my hand and cross only if the driver stops at the pedestrian crossing.

Thank goodness autonomous vehicles are coming. Soon, all these inconsiderate drivers will be un-insurable.

Imagine having really expensive autonomous vehicles running around and they are almost never at fault in an accident, backed up by full HD video and audio evidences uploaded to the cloud in real time. Whoever insures those human drivers will go bankrupt really soon.

In high stress environment, accident is a natural development on system driven by govt for GDP.

The taxi driver mind dominant all the high cost problem prone to accident. The 86 yr old walk like a nail and his mind troubling on expensive medical bill . .

The accident take place could be after hospital visit.

Who make him take the public transport to hospital ?

Who fault ?

The traffic light green man , taxi driver, old man slow reaction on traffic light or the govt policies that make ppl living in mental stress.
