SINGAPORE - Two bus passengers and the driver of a car were taken to hospital after a bus and a car collided in Holland Road on Friday (Sept 29).

A photo sent to citizen journalism site Stomp shows an SBS Transit bus with cracks in its windscreen. The contributor who gave his name only as Syrus said he was on bus service 502 when the bus driver braked suddenly.

He said he believes the bus hit a vehicle in front of it.

The police told The Straits Times that they were alerted to the accident along Holland Road, towards the junction of Napier Road and Cluny Road at 11.54am.

"Three people were conscious when taken to the National University Hospital," said the police spokesman.

Ms Tammy Tan, SBS Transit's senior vice-president of corporate communications, told ST that it is in touch with the three injured people.

"They all received outpatient treatment," she said. "Meanwhile, we are assisting the police in their investigations."

The accident comes a day after four people were injured after an SBS Transit bus mounted a kerb in Bedok.

Police investigations are ongoing.
