Despite the severity of the crash, miraculously, no “serious” injuries were reported by ST.

How did the accident occur?

Police will be investigating the cause of the crash, but eyewitnesses claim they saw a car “skidding” and crashing into the bus shelter, taking “down one of the pillars”.

As for the occupants of the car, a driver allegedly fetched “a woman and a baby”, before colliding into the bus stop.

ST reports that it is unknown if the driver was injured or taken to the hospital.

The 27-year-old man is believed to be a pedestrian.
