MISS Tan Mingwei, 20, the Singaporean medical student killed in a hit-and-run accident in North London on Thursday, was a high-flying undergraduate at Cambridge University who was 'always full of joy', said British media reports.

Miss Tan was due to start her third year at the university's Peterhouse College, where she was studying medical science. She was dragged for almost 2km after being struck outside the Royal Free Hospital in Pond Street, Hampstead.

A 50-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident.

Miss Tan was also the president of Cambridge University's karate club. The Camden New Journal reported that in her application to become the club's president, Miss Tan said: 'I'm keen! Better than just attending them, I enjoy trainings and socials enough to want to have a hand in organising them.'

From Epoch Times,
周四(9月30日)凌晨,伦敦发生一起车祸惨剧,在剑桥大学攻读医学的新加坡华裔女生谭明薇(Mingwei Tan音译)被一辆车撞倒后,被车拖走一英里,当场丧命。更增添一丝悲剧色彩的是车祸当天正是谭明薇的20岁生日。目前警方正在追查肇事司机。

20 岁的谭明薇是剑桥大学彼得学院(Peterhouse College)的一名医学本科生,马上就要进入大学的第三年了。但是不幸的是,她在周四凌晨伦敦汉普斯戴德皇家自由医院(Hampstead Royal Free Hospital)门外被一辆车撞倒,然后被拖行大约一英里远。
Reported by Any Hollywood,
Police say it is possible that the driver is not aware he or she hit the victim Tan.

Her handbag – containing a wallet, mobile phone and student ID – was found in the road 150 metres from the body, alongside a clump of dark hair, outside Belsize Park Tube station.

  1. It is extremely sad and heart breaking to hear of this news. I know Tan Tarn How and the death is really very horrifying. Our prayers with the family of the deceased.

  4. I think that what you wrote made a great deal of sense.
    However, think on this, what if you were to create a killer
    title? I am not suggesting your information is
    not good, but what if you added something that grabbed people's attention? I mean "of singaporean student, tan mingwei, killed in hit-and-run accident in london (photos)" is kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create post titles to get people to click.
    You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.
