A bus, PA8380E, crashed into the road divider along Boon Lay Way, next to Lakeside MRT Station today (July 11) at around 7.20am.

Stomper Aoshima who was on his way to work came across the scene and took some photos, sending them to Stomp. 

From the photos, the bus appeared to have collided into the road divider and was left stranded by the roadside. 

Due to the accident, the lane which the vehicle was travelling on was also closed off. 

SCDF officers were also spotted at the scene. 

Said Aoshima:

“I’m puzzled by the cause of the accident.

“At first I thought the bus crashed as the driver wanted to make a U-turn.

“However, I realised later that there were no U-turn signs at all near the accident site.

“It’s quite weird.”
The SCDF have issued an official statement on the incident:

"SCDF were alerted to an accident involving a bus at Boon Lay Way on July 11, at 7.10am.

"The bus driver was conveyed to the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital for treatment."
