Three drivers and two passengers were taken to hospital after an accident involving a tipper truck, a van and a car at the junction of Hougang Ave 3 and Bartley Road East.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident at 8.19pm.

"Three drivers, a 40-year-old male van driver, a 40-year-old female car driver and a 34-year-old male tipper truck driver, and two passengers, a 38-year-old female van passenger and a 43-year-old male car passenger, were conscious when conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital," added the police spokesman.

Stomper Stefanie shared video footage of the accident that was taken as she passed by the scene.

In the video, Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers and three ambulances can be seen at the junction.

The front of the van appears completely smashed inwards and the tipper truck seems to have crashed into the rear of the car.

Police investigations are ongoing.
