SINGAPORE - Ten cars were involved in a pile-up along the Pan-Island Expressway on Thursday evening.

Four people were sent to hospital after the crash in the direction towards Tuas, after the Paya Lebar exit.

A man in his 50s, a woman in her teens, and two women in their 50s were sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital with minor injuries, a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) spokesman told The Straits Times.

The SCDF received a call for assistance at 5.30pm and sent two ambulances to the scene.
