A car driver and three taxi passengers were taken to hospital after an accident at the junction of New Bridge Road and Teo Hong Road on Sunday afternoon (Oct 2).

In the footage, the car beats a red light and is hit from the left by an oncoming taxi coming from Teo Hong Road.

"Always check all directions before moving off, even if you have the right of way," said the Stomper.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident at 3.28pm.
