5 hurt in accident involving Audi and Toyota at Holland Road, maid seriously injured

Five people were injured in an accident involving an Audi and a Toyota last Friday night (April 6), including a domestic helper who sustained serious injuries and remains in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit (ICU).

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to an accident involving two cars at the junction of Ulu Pandan Road and Holland Road, at around 9.10pm.

A witness, Mr Fu, told Lianhe Wanbao that he was on a bus travelling along Ulu Pandan Road, towards Holland Village, when he saw the Audi going past the right side of the bus at "relatively high speed".

Mr Fu said that just as the Audi drove past the junction, a Toyota travelling in the opposite direction made a right turn into Holland Road.

A loud bang was heard when both cars collided, with the Audi crashing into the Toyota's left rear wheel.

The impact was so great that it caused the Toyota to "spin three rounds" before the vehicle came to a stop. The car body was badly damaged and its rear left tyre became dislodged.

Mr Fu, a 23-year-old who is still serving National Service (NS), quickly alighted from the bus and found a woman lying on the grass patch near the accident site.

The victim was breathing rapidly and bleeding from the head while another woman squatted down to attend to her.

According to Mr Fu, a couple in their 70s, two domestic helpers and a male driver in his 30s were in the Toyota.

One of the domestic helpers was the woman lying on the ground.

"I spoke to the driver. He was a private-hire vehicle driver (PHV) and had been sending the couple and their two maids home," added Mr Fu.

An ambulance subsequently arrived at the scene and sent the five victims, all of whom were in a conscious state, to the National University Hospital (NUH).

Police investigations are ongoing.
