11-month-old baby taken to hospital after accident involving ambulance, 2 cars near Geylang

An 11-month-old baby was taken to the hospital after an accident involving an Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) ambulance and two cars on Monday evening (Aug 15).

The accident at the junction of Geylang and Tanjong Katong roads happened at 6.45pm.

In response to queries from The Straits Times, SCDF said: “A patient from one of the cars was assessed for minor injuries and conveyed by another SCDF ambulance to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital in a conscious and stable condition.”

SCDF added that the ambulance was responding to an incident and had its blinker lights on when the accident happened.

Police investigations are ongoing.

A photograph of the accident sent by a reader to Chinese-language newspaper Shin Min Daily News shows a BlueSG rental car with a badly damaged bumper, and the SCDF ambulance is seen with some damage to its back.

The reader said that the road, which was usually busy in the evening, was congested for almost an hour due to the accident.
