17 people hurt in AYE morning collisions
SEVENTEEN people were injured yesterday morning after a lorry was involved in collisions with two private buses on the Ayer Rajah Expressway.
It is understood that one of the buses skidded, then rammed into the side of the lorry before the Jurong Town Hall Road exit, at around 8am.
The impact caused the lorry to swerve and hit the back of the other bus, which was not carrying any passengers. Two of the four lanes had to be closed to traffic, causing a jam.
The victims were taken to Alexandra Hospital and the National University Hospital (NUH).
One was warded while another is under observation at NUH. Both are in stable condition. The other 15 received outpatient treatment.
