Five people were sent to the hospital after a cement mixer rammed into the bus they were riding in on Monday afternoon (Aug 27).
The accident happened when bus service 163 was travelling near Sengkang West Avenue at around 3.45pm.
According to Shin Min Daily, it was raining at the time and the bus was travelling towards Toa Payoh.
A passenger said that the bus was about to cross a junction when the cement mixer lorry collided with it.
The bus went out of control and only stopped when it crashed into a row of fences in the middle of Fernvale Road.
There were more than 10 people on board the bus at the time.
A commuter, known only as Madam Yu, said that she felt a sudden impact and fell onto the bus floor. Her body then rolled out of the rear doors on the bus. She suffered a bump on her forehead and injuries to her hands.
Other commuters also told Shin Min that the the traffic light was green when the bus driver had crossed the junction.
As a result, they believed that the driver of the cement mixer was trying to beat a red light at the time of the accident.
