Seven people hospitalised after Tampines accident

THE STRAITS TIMES – Seven people, including a two-year-old boy, were taken to Singaporean hospitals after an accident involving two cars and a taxi on Wednesday.

The accident at the junction of Tampines Avenue 2 and Tampines Avenue 9 happened at 4pm.

The police said a 54-year-old taxi driver and four of his passengers, aged between two and 35, as well as three passengers from another car, aged between 51 and 79, were conscious when officers arrived at the scene.

Investigations are ongoing.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said two people were taken to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, while five were taken to Changi General Hospital.

“One person was assessed for minor injuries and subsequently refused to be sent to hospital,” said SCDF.

Pictures of the accident from Shin Min Daily News show a taxi on a grass patch near the junction, while a red car with a badly damaged bumper is in the middle of the road.

A silver car is seen nearby with some damage to its front.

A video of the aftermath shows a woman in a white shirt crouching near the taxi.
