A 61-year-old man was arrested for drink-driving after two lorries were involved in an accident at the junction of Yishun Avenue 6 and Yishun Avenue 9 on Sunday (Sep 9).

A Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) spokesman told Stomp that they responded to the accident at 7.50pm.

A man in his 20s refused to be taken to hospital, SCDF said.
