SINGAPORE: A 25-year-old man has been arrested after the car he was driving mounted a pavement at Marina Bay Financial Centre on Monday (Apr 15), injuring four people. 

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was alerted to the accident at about 6.10pm, at the junction of Central Boulevard and Marina Way. 

A passenger in the car and three pedestrians were conscious when taken to Singapore General Hospital, said the police. 

Facebook user Wongnu Njie Chingu shared photos of the accident, saying that a Mitsubishi Lancer had knocked down a metal bollard and "ploughed into a crowd of pedestrians" outside Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3.

A video posted on Facebook page Connextaxi shows people crowding around a red car, with a damaged metal bollard nearby.

The driver was arrested for causing grievous hurt by negligent act, said the police, adding that investigations are ongoing.
