Lorry hits woman, five cars in Serangoon
A LORRY collided with a taxi at a traffic junction along Serangoon Road yesterday morning, hitting a pedestrian and veering off into an open-air carpark to hit four other vehicles.
The incident happened at about 7am at the traffic junction of Serangoon, Towner and Boon Keng roads, Chinese newspaper Lianhe Wanbao reported yesterday.
A resident who saw the incident and gave her name as Mani, said a white lorry and a red cab were driving very closely to each other at the traffic junction.
After both vehicles crossed the T-junction, the vehicles were believed to have lost control in an effort to avoid hitting each other, said the 56-year-old retiree.
The lorry hurtled across several lanes, a pedestrian path and into an open-air carpark, hitting a row of four cars that were parked there.
At the time of the collision, there was a woman near the traffic junction.
She was knocked over and lay by the roadside.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force told My Paper yesterday that it sent two people to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
Wanbao reported that one of them was a 20-year-old woman who had relatively major injuries.
Police said the lorry driver has been arrested. Investigations are under way.
