SINGAPORE - A woman was taken to hospital after a car crashed into an eatery at Pickering Street on Thursday morning (Sept 13).

In response to queries, the police said that they were alerted to the accident at 9.42am.

The 53-year-old woman was conscious when taken to Singapore General Hospital, it added.

The Straits Times understands that the woman was a passenger in the car that had crashed into Five Square, a bar located at the Great Eastern Centre.

She suffered from minor injuries.
