SINGAPORE - A 10-vehicle pile-up along the East Coast Parkway (ECP) during Monday (Feb 22) morning's rush hour left at least three people with injuries.

The mass accident happened at 9.25am along the ECP in the direction of Changi Airport before the Marine Vista exit.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force was alerted to the incident, and took one person to Raffles Hospital.

Two others had minor injuries but said they did not need further help.

According to an eyewitness interviewed by Chinese-language daily Lianhe Zaobao, the damage to most of the vehicles was not too serious, although one or two were more severely mangled.

Some 15 people tried to help those affected by the crash. A crowd also gathered on the pedestrian overhead bridge overlooking the scene.

As the accident happened on the rightmost lane of the expressway, traffic was not too badly affected.
