SINGAPORE - Seven people were injured in an accident along Airport Boulevard on Thursday (Dec 15) night involving six vehicles, including three taxis.

The accident occurred at about 10.50pm at 65 Airport Boulevard, a spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told The Straits Times on Friday (Dec 16).

A video of the pile-up posted on Facebook shows what appears to be a taxi on top of a black car in the third lane.

Housing agent Alvin Teo, 46, who was caught in the traffic jam that ensued, told Shin Min Daily News in a report on Friday that the front of the black car underneath the taxi seemed to be severely damaged, while the taxi's rear was dented.

The police said it was alerted to an accident involving three cars and three taxis at 10.49pm along Airport Boulevard towards the Pan-Island Expressway.

Seven people were taken to Changi General Hospital with minor injuries.

Police investigations are ongoing.
