Two people were killed and four people were injured after a car crashed through a railing and onto a side road outside Lucky Plaza on Sunday afternoon (Dec 29).

The 64-year-old driver of the car has been arrested for dangerous driving causing death.

Several Stompers alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos and videos circulating online of the scene.

In one of the videos, a woman is pinned under the black car. 

Several civilians gather to lift the car and pull the woman out.

Paramedics are seen performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on at least three people in another video.

When Stomp visited the scene at about 7pm, the metal railing appeared to be severely damaged.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that it received a call requesting assistance at 304 Orchard Road at about 5pm.

Five ambulances were dispatched by SCDF to the scene.

"Six casualties were conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital," said an SCDF spokesman.

"Four pedestrians, aged 37 to 56, were conveyed conscious to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

"A 64-year-old male driver was arrested for dangerous driving causing death."
