Nine people were taken to hospital after an accident involving four vehicles at a traffic junction in Yishun on Sunday night.

The police told The Straits Times yesterday that they were alerted to the accident, involving three cars and a taxi, at the junction of Yishun Avenue 2 and Yishun Avenue 7 at 7.25pm on Sunday.

"A total of seven men and two women, aged between 18 and 69, were conscious when taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital," said a police spokesman.
