"I came across an accident site at around 8pm Toh Guan Road today (Jun 1).
"I'm not too sure what happened exactly but I heard an elderly Malay woman and her two grandchildren were knocked down by a taxi driver, who was doing an illegal U-Turn there.
"The woman and her grandchildren were on a bicycle when the accident happened and she got flung about 100 metres while the two children were thrown to the kerb of the road.
"Within a few minutes of this happening, the Civil Defence arrived and sent the elderly woman to the hospital almost immediately.
"The children, who were both semi-conscious then, were sent to the hospital in another ambulance which arrived later on.
"There was blood splattered on the floor though it is not a lot."
