SINGAPORE - An SBS Transit bus crashed into a wall at Eastern Lagoon II condo in Bedok at around 9pm on Saturday (Dec 3).

The bus mounted a kerb and hit the exterior wall of the condo, said Ms Tammy Tan, senior vice-president of SBS Transit corporate communications, when contacted by The Straits Times.

"Thankfully none of our 30 passengers nor our bus captain was injured," she said.

All passengers on board bus 197 were transferred to the next bus and continued their journeys.

SBS Transit apologised for the inconvenience and distress caused and are currently investigating the cause of the accident.
