SINGAPORE - A 62-year-old man was taken to hospital after an accident involving a car along New Upper Changi Road on Wednesday (Oct 18) morning.

The man, who was on an e-bicycle, was crossing a traffic junction near Bedok North Avenue 3 when a black Toyota crashed into him. It was unclear who had the right of way at the time of accident. 

The Straits Times understands that the man suffered serious head injuries. 

A Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) spokesman said it was alerted at 7.53am and dispatched an ambulance to the scene.

The man was taken to Changi General Hospital, with the hospital alerted to be on standby to receive him.
