SINGAPORE: Ten people were taken to Changi General Hospital after an accident involving seven vehicles on the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) on Monday morning (Sep 27).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was alerted to an accident along PIE towards Changi, before the Jalan Eunos exit, at around 8am.

Officers also assessed three people for minor injuries. They did not want to be taken to the hospital, SCDF added.

A video sent by a CNA reader showed seven vehicles at the scene of the accident. They were seen occupying the first and third lanes, leaving only one lane open to traffic.

The police said that the accident involved a trailer, a motorcycle, three lorries and two cars.

A 25-year-old lorry driver, a 24-year-old motorcyclist, as well as eight passengers from the three lorries, aged between 25 and 45, were conscious when taken to the hospital, the police added.

Police investigations are ongoing.
