The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was notified about the incident, which took place along the PIE towards Tuas, before the Jurong West Avenue 2 exit, at about 10.50am.

The 56-year-old male driver of the truck was taken to hospital conscious, while a 58-year-old male lorry driver is assisting with investigations, police said.

SCDF said it took a person to the National University Hospital.
