SINGAPORE - Three people were taken to hospital after they were involved in an accident caused by a wild boar along Lentor Avenue on Friday (Sept 29) morning, in the second accident involving a wild boar in two days.

The police were alerted at 6.59am to the accident involving two cars, a van and the wild boar on Lentor Avenue, in the direction of Yishun.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force took three people to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital conscious.

They were aged between 17 and 53, according to the police.

Police investigations are ongoing.

In a photo sent by reader Jason Soon, a car with its rear badly damaged was facing sideways in the leftmost lane of the road.

 

The wild boar can be seen lying motionless beside it. It is not clear if the animal was killed.

This is the second time a wild boar has caused a road accident in two days.

On Thursday (Sept 28) morning, the sudden appearance of a wild boar on the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) after the Tuas Checkpoint caused a traffic accident that sent two people on a motorcycle to hospital, and left the animal dead.
