SINGAPORE - Two bus passengers were taken to hospital after a road accident involving an SBS Transit bus, three cars and a lorry along Compassvale Drive towards Rivervale Lane on Monday (Jan 25).

The police were alerted to the accident at 6.58am. Two female bus passengers aged seven and 37 were conscious when taken to hospitals, the police said.

A video from a dashboard camera circulating online shows the bus crashing into the rear of a car. The impact sent a lorry lurching forward.

Investigations are ongoing.

In response to queries, Ms Tammy Tan, SBS Transit’s senior vice-president of corporate communication, said the injured mother and child received outpatient treatment.  

“We are in touch with the mother and are rendering assistance to them as best as we can. We apologise to affected commuters and motorists for the distress and inconvenience caused,” she said.
