SINGAPORE - Three cars were damaged by a fallen tree along Sime Road following heavy rain on Tuesday (July 26) morning.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was alerted to the incident near the Singapore Island Country Club at about 10.55am.

It dispatched a fire engine, a Red Rhino, an ambulance and a support vehicle to the scene.

No one was trapped in the vehicles and no injuries were reported, a spokesman said. SCDF personnel remained at the scene to assist with clearing the debris.

In a Facebook post, Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong shared pictures of the cars smashed by the fallen branches.

He said that it was lucky no one was seriously injured, noting that the driver of an Uber car was "slightly cut" by broken glass from the top of his car.

Mr Goh wrote: "I had to walk around the fallen tree to go home in another car waiting on the other side of the tree. I hope the drivers of the three cars are not badly traumatized."
