6 taken to hospital after traffic accident at junction of Keppel Road and Cantonment Link

Six people were taken to hospital on Saturday (Sept 10) night after an accident at the junction of Keppel Road and Cantonment Link.

One of them was a 50-year-old male ComfortDelGro taxi driver who suffered leg and chest injuries.

The police and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they were alerted to the crash, involving a taxi and another car, at about 8.15pm.

The other driver, who is a 55-year-old man, and four taxi passengers were also taken to Singapore General Hospital, the police and SCDF said. All of them were conscious.

Photos on social media show a ComfortDelGro taxi and a white car near a traffic light, with a group of pedestrians standing on the pavement.

ComfortDelGro group corporate communications officer Tammy Tan said the taxi was going straight with the green light in its favour at the junction, when another vehicle which was turning right at the same junction collided with the taxi, causing it to mount the kerb and hit the traffic light.

The cabby has been warded. The passengers suffered minor injuries, said Ms Tan, adding that no pedestrians were injured.

ComfortDelGro is providing assistance to its cabby and passengers.

Police investigations are ongoing.
