Major accident along Farrer Road, 3 injured

SINGAPORE: Three people were injured in an accident involving a truck and two cars on Sunday evening at Farrer Road near Blk 64.

Traffic was almost brought to a standstill for about two hours on Farrer Road toward Holland Road.

This after an overturned mover's truck blocked three out of the four lanes.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it received a call about the accident at 5pm.

The SCDF despatched a fire engine, one red rhino, two ambulances and two other support vehicles.

Three men were injured including the truck driver - a male Chinese national in his 30s, his passenger who is a Singaporean man in his 20s and a pedestrian in his 40s.

It is believed that the pedestrian was hit by a car while trying to help the other two men.

SCDF said the trio suffered abrasions and cuts on their limbs.

They were sent to Alexandra Hospital in a conscious state.
