After getting involved in a minor traffic accident, this private-hire car driver inched her car forward such that one of its front tyres ran over the foot of the motorist involved in the accident.

That motorist, Jazz Tan, had been driving his car along the rightmost lane of Yishun Ring Road when the PHV driver, Quek Chin Fern, suddenly swerved her car into his lane from the left and his car.

Both drivers then stopped along the road near the entrance of Yishun Junior College.

Quek refused to give Tan her identification details when requested, only revealing her handphone number.

Tan then said he would call the police.

That’s when Quek insisted she had to leave.

Tan stood behind her car, a black Toyota Isis, to prevent her from driving off.

Instead of stopping the car, Quek inched it backwards until it came into contact with Tan.

Tan then moved to the front of her car, again to prevent her from driving off.

Quek inched her car forward this time until the front bumper of her car came into contact with Tan.

She continued doing that for a distance of about 50m, until Tan stepped aside he felt a pain in his left knee and discovered that his left shoe was stuck under the front right tyre of Quek’s car.

As soon as he stepped aside, Quek drove off.

The incident took place at about 8.42pm on 17 Aug, 2015.

In her defence, Quek through her lawyer said that she had picked up her 17-year-old son from his junior college and needed to drop him home quickly before continuing with her driving as she was “on the clock”.

You might remember Quek as the mom who was arrested and fined in August 2016 for abusing a Johor immigration officer when she was on the way to Sunway College in Johor to pick up her children.

The trio had been living on the streets and with friends in Johor for a year after they were released from custody.

Quek was arrested on the way back from Johor in September this year as a warrant of arrest had been issued for her run-road traffic accident.

She was yesterday jailed for causing hurt by performing a rash act to endanger life.
