The Stomper saw that the area had been cordoned off and police and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers were at the scene.

A police spokesman told Stomp that they were alerted to the accident at 10.59am.

"The car driver, a 67-year-old woman was conscious when conveyed to NUH," he said. "Police investigations are ongoing."
