Seven Sent To Hospital After Taxi & 2 Cars Collide In Tampines On 11 May

Traffic accidents don’t just happen on expressways where traffic is faster. They can also happen in heartlands where traffic is relatively slower and drivers supposedly have more time to react.

On Wednesday (11 May), a traffic accident took place at a busy junction in Tampines, involving a taxi and two cars.

Seven people were apparently injured in the accident. The police are currently investigating the cause of the collision.
