Three woman and a man were hospitalised yesterday afternoon after an SBS Transit double-decker bus plowed into the pedestrian walkway outside Bedok Residences.

Officers from the Singapore Civil Defense Force were dispatched to the scene around 1.30pm and attended to the four injured – one of whom was trapped underneath the bus. Rescuers extricated the trapped lady out using hydraulic lifting equipment and conveyed all four individuals to the hospital.

SBS Transit is currently investigating how the accident occurred and what led the driver to lose control of the vehicle. A spokesperson told reporters that the transport group has sent a team to the hospital, to offer support for the injured.

This is the second time this week that a vehicle has plowed into a pedestrian walkway in Singapore.

On Monday, a lorry rammed into a walkway at the junction of Punggol Road and Compassvale Street, flipping sideways after the crash and collapsing part of the walkway’s rooftop.

Fortunately, the lorry did not land on any pedestrians. A woman in her 50s, believed to be a passenger in the lorry, sustained minor injuries but refused to be taken to the hospital.
