An elderly female cyclist was taken to hospital after colliding with another cyclist at Hougang Avenue 8 yesterday (Mar 6) at around 7pm.

Stomper Charlyn alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos of the woman being surrounded by passers-by and paramedics.

She said it happened near Xinmin Primary School at Block 644.

Stomp understands that the male cyclist who was travelling in the opposite direction had missed the woman because his view was "blocked".

The woman then complained of pain and an ambulance was called.

In response to a Stomp media query, a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) spokesman said they were alerted to the incident at 7.05pm and dispatched one ambulance and conveyed one person to Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).
