Four people were taken to hospital after a collision involving a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) ambulance and a car occurred along New Bridge Road on Friday night (Sep 7).

The four people consisted of a patient and three ambulance crew including its driver, a paramedic and an emergency medical technician.

Stompers Philip and Kohji contributed photos of the scene, showing a red car mounted on the road divider and titled at an odd angle.

The ambulance's front bumper was damaged.

Stomp understands that the car had been making a right turn when the crash happened.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to the accident at the junction of New Bridge Road and Teo Hong Road at 6.45pm.

"The driver and three passengers of the ambulance, aged between 23 and 69, were conscious when conveyed to Singapore General Hospital (SGH)," added a police spokesman.

The SCDF told Stomp: "At about 7pm, an SCDF ambulance was travelling along New Bridge Road when it was involved in a traffic accident with a car."

The ambulance, which was sending the patient to hospital when the accident took place, had its blinker lights on.

The SCDF also said that the driver of the car involved in the accident did not have any visible injuries and refused conveyance to hospital.
