A collision between an SMRT bus and an SBS Transit bus at the junction of Selegie Road and Mackenzie Road yesterday left 11 injured. The accident, that occurred around 10pm, saw SMRT bus service 857 colliding into SBS Transit bus service 64 from behind.

Two female passengers were conveyed to Tan Tock Seng hospital while nine others reported injuries but declined to be taken to the hospital, according to the Singapore Civil Defence Force. The two passengers who were taken to the hospital are aged 31 and 61.

This latest accident between buses from the two main public bus operators in Singapore comes less than a month after another collision involving an SMRT bus and an SBS Transit bus left 33 injured. That incident occurred at a bus stop at Jalan Jurong Kechil, near Bukit Batok, on 11 May.

One SBS Transit bus commuter, who posted the photos showing the extensive damage the buses bore in last month’s incident, told reporters: “I heard a big bang and I saw passengers roll over the floor…I saw blood on the floor and the passengers were crying.” The 46-year-old added: “Some passengers in the bus couldn’t walk and were totally injured.”
