SINGAPORE - A police car was involved in an accident with three other cars and three motorcycles parked at a Jurong East carpark on Thursday (March 9) morning.

The accident took place at Jurong East Street 21, near Block 218, at around 7.30am.

Photos showed that the vehicles involved suffered varying degrees of damage, including smashed bumpers and shattered windscreens.

Eyewitnesses told Shin Min Daily News that there were two police officers - a man and a woman - in the car. The male police officer was said to be the driver.

He suffered light injuries. No one else was injured.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said it sent an ambulance down to the accident site but the driver refused to be taken to hospital.

It is not known yet what caused the accident.

When contacted, a police spokesman said that investigations are ongoing.

Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Grace Fu, who is a Member of Parliament for the Yuhua constituency, said in a Facebook post on Thursday afternoon that she had been informed of the accident.

Ms Fu revealed that one of the cars had collided with a lift shaft of a HDB block, although she assured residents that the damage was not structural and did not compromise their safety.

"Jurong East NPC has contacted the affected parties, and we are working together to offer additional support and assistance to the vehicle owners and their families," she wrote.

"I am relieved to learn that we have escaped serious injury. I stand ready to assist the vehicle owners who have suffered damages."
