SINGAPORE - Public buses are a common sight everywhere in Singapore but not like this.

An SBS Transit bus crashed into seven parked motorcycles along Changi Village Road on Wednesday (March 16) at around 7am as it was leaving a bus bay.

Ms Tammy Tan, senior vice-president of corporate communications at SBS, said: "Our Bus Captain suddenly felt unwell. As a result, he was unable to avoid a collision."

When the bus finally came to a stop, it occupied almost the entire parking area for motorcycles.

The collision also pushed two motorcycles underneath a Toyoto Vios parked in front of the motorcycle lots.

According to the Singapore Police Force, a 23-year-old male motorcyclist was conveyed conscious to Changi General hospital.

Ms Tan added: "We are very sorry that a motorcyclist was injured as a result but are thankful that his injuries are not serious. We have been in touch with him and are rendering him assistance."

The accident also caused a traffic jam.

Mr Tay Kim Hock, 62, said: "The bus must have really lost control as it ended up in the motorcycle parking lots, and in the end I was stuck in traffic for 15 minutes as the road wasn't very wide."

Police investigations are still ongoing.
