The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) confirmed that they were alerted to the accident at about 7:07am that morning. SCDF used hydraulic rescue equipment to free a person who was lying on the ground and had one leg trapped under the wheel of a car.

A total of eight people were sent to the hospital. Four people were sent to Changi General Hospital, two to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and two to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Eyewitnesses claimed that children were among the injured.
