5 injured after cement mixer rams into bus

SINGAPORE - Five people have been sent to the hospital after a cement mixer rammed into the bus they were riding in on Monday afternoon.

Bus service 163 was travelling near Sengkang West Avenue at about 3.45pm when the accident happened.

According to Shin Min Daily, it was raining at the time and the bus was travelling in the direction of Toa Payoh.

A passenger told the Chinese paper that the bus was about to cross a junction when the cement mixer lorry collided with it.

The bus driver lost control of the vehicle, which only came to a halt when it crashed into a row of fences in the middle of Fernvale Road.

There were more than 10 people on board at the time, the paper reported.

A commuter, known only as Madam Yu, told Shin Min that she felt a sudden impact and fell onto the bus floor. Her body then rolled out of the rear doors on the bus.

Madam Yu suffered injuries to her hands and has a bump on her forehead.

Other commuters the paper spoke to said that the bus driver had crossed the junction when the traffic light was green.

As a result, they expressed the belief that the driver of the cement mixer was trying to beat a red light at the time of the accident.
