Five foreign workers, who were injured after the lorry they were travelling in collided with a Mercedes Benz on Changi Coastal Road on Wednesday afternoon, are still receiving treatment at Changi General Hospital (CGH).

A representative from their employer Richee Engineering Enterprise, told The Straits Times on Thursday that all five workers who were hurt in the accident are Indian nationals, including the driver of the lorry.

Police said they were informed of the accident at about 4.40pm on Wednesday, shortly after two Singapore Civil Defence Force ambulances were dispatched to the scene.

All five men - some of whom suffered injuries including abrasions and fractures - were conscious when they were conveyed to CGH, said the police.

Investigations are ongoing but no one has been arrested in relation to the accident.
