Two people were taken to hospital after the motorcycle that they were riding collided with a bus along Pioneer Road North on Sunday night (Sept 11).

Facebook user Desmond Lim, who posted photos of the accident scene, said he witnessed the crash outside Nanyang Technological University (NTU) at around 10.30pm.

According to Lim, the motorcyclist and his pillion rider were "thrown off" their motorcycle.

Lim's photos show an SBS Transit bus with its front bumper damaged. A pool of blood can be seen next to a motorcycle lying on its side.

Paramedics from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) are spotted attending to a man and a woman by the roadside.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident along Pioneer Road North towards Nanyang Crescent at 10.44pm.

A male motorcyclist and his female pillion rider, both aged 27, were conscious when taken to hospital.

Police investigations are ongoing.

Mrs Grace Wu, SBS Transit's vice president (special grade) of customer experience and communications, told Stomp: "On Sunday night, at about 10.30pm, a Service 179 bus collided with a motorcycle along Pioneer Road North.

"Based on our CCTV footage, our bus captain was travelling straight with the green light in its favour when the motorcyclist from the opposite direction made a right turn and into the path of the bus.

"As a result of this, the motorcyclist and his pillion rider were hurt.

"Our bus captain informed our operations control centre to activate an ambulance, which conveyed both of them to the hospital.

"We are already in touch with them where the motorcyclist is now recovering at home. We wish them a speedy recovery."
