A lorry rammed into a pedestrian walkway at the junction of Punggol Road and Compassvale Street this afternoon, 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. This is according to the Singapore Civil Defense Force (SCDF) which dispatched an ambulance to the scene after being alerted to the accident at 12.35pm.
