Twenty-six people were taken to hospital after an accident involving several vehicles occurred near Woodlands Checkpoint today (Dec 20) at around 6am.

"The accident caused a jam as the left-lane was closed," said the Stomper. "However, it was soon cleared by officers who redirected traffic".

A police spokesman said the police were alerted to an accident involving two trailers, a bus and a car along 21 Woodlands Crossing today at 6.14am.

"The bus driver and 25 bus passengers were conveyed conscious to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital," she said.

In response to Stomp media queries, a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) spokesman said that they were alerted to the accident at Woodlands Crossing at about 6.10am and that 26 people were taken to hospital.
