“Last evening, an off service bus was travelling straight along Lorong 6 Toa Payoh when a taxi suddenly emerged from a slip road, resulting in a collision," Ms Tammy Tan, SBS Transit's senior vice-president of corporate communications said in a response to a CNA query.

"The taxi driver was conveyed conscious to hospital. We wish him a speedy recovery."
