STOMPer David's husky was knocked down and killed by a taxi at Old Jurong Road on Saturday (Jun 30). The STOMPer is appealing for witnesses of the hit-and-run accident who caught sight of the taxi's licence plate.
"Sincerely seeking for car drivers that witnessed the accident which caused the death of my sister’s husky.
"Hope to find drivers who can remember the hit-and-run cab driver's car plate number.
"The accident occurred on Saturday (30 Jun 2012), around 3pm. My sister had brought him out for a walk.
"My sister’s dog (Ah Boy) was knocked down by a yellow cab at Old Jurong Road, from Bukit Batok towards Upper Bukit Timah Road.
"Apparently, something startled ah boy, and he walked onto the road. There were a few cars then, and ALL cars on the road managed to stop at a distance, without much difficulty as traffic was slow.
"All this happened in the blink of an eye.
"Being shocked, my sister was rooted to the ground, and wasn’t able to respond appropriately.
"Then there was this yellow cab. As described by an eye-witness who was jogging by, it accelerated suddenly after slowing down, and seemed to deliberately ram into Ah Boy.
"The Taxi stopped and Ah Boy limped back to the pavement with my sister shrieking.
"As bystanders were crowding around Ah Boy and my sister, the taxi sped off.
"Ah Boy struggled and cried in pain for a good 10 minutes before passing away.
"My sister and some helpful passers-by could do nothing but watch.
"Some kind passer-by and drivers had passed us their contact numbers, agreeing to be our eye-witness but sadly none could remember the car plate number.
"I sincerely hope any kind drivers/passers-by who can remember the taxi's car plate number, would kindly come forward and help us.
"Any advice is welcome. Many thanks."
