The accident, which involved bus service 969, caused the structure in Yishun Avenue 2 to collapse partially.
I won't be surprised if the bus driver was from bolehland. In any case, sack his reckless ass ASAP!
WTF is that blood on the road???!!!!
Yeah, the bus is bleeding after kissing the taxi stand. The poor thing was probably overworked and lost its focus, hence resulting in the accident.
SINGAPORE: Three people were taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital after a bus crashed into a taxi bay near Yishun MRT station on Saturday afternoon (Nov 6), said the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF).
It received a call for assistance on Yishun Avenue 2 at about 1pm.
"Upon SCDF's arrival, a passenger bus had crashed into a taxi bay and the covered walkway to the bay had partially collapsed," SCDF said.
"No one was trapped in the passenger bus."
Tower Transit said in a Facebook post that the bus captain has been suspended.
According to the transport operator, the bus which was plying service 969 hit the shelter "shortly after 1pm".
"We are in the process of getting in touch with the injured and their families and assisting the authorities with an investigation," said Tower Transit.
"To those affected in any way by the accident, we’re very sorry."
The Singapore Police Force (SPF) said the 63-year-old male driver and two female pedestrians, 60 and 64, were conscious when taken to hospital.
"Police investigations are ongoing," added SPF.
Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, a Member of Parliament for Nee Soon GRC, said he visited the scene after being informed of the incident.
While noting that "investigation is underway to find out the exact cause of the accident", he said preliminary checks showed the bus may have "hit one of the beams supporting the covered linkway, causing the roof to collapse".
"I am in touch with LTA, SCDF and the police to get updates. We will work together to resolve this situation and provide support to the victims and their families where necessary," said Assoc Prof Faishal.
