MRT Trains Collide At Station In Western Singapore; 25 People Hurt

6 Malaysians injured in Singapore MRT train crash

- Picture by Low Youjin/TODAY SINGAPORE, Nov 15 - Twenty-three passengers sustained minor injuries and had to be taken to nearby hospitals after a collision between two trains at Joo Koon MRT station this morning.

The SMRT tweeted that there would be a delay in service due to "train fault" at Joo Koon station.

A spokesman from Ng Teng Fong Hospital said among the 10 injured at the hospital, two were assessed to have sustained injuries under the P2 category or "major emergencies" such as limb fractures and joint dislocation.

Earlier, the Singapore Civil Defence Force said in a Twitter post that it had been alerted to an incident at the station at 8:33 a.m.

The platform at Joo Koon MRT Station has been partially cordoned off following a collision between two trains. A total of 23 people were sent to hospital, most with minor injuries, SCDF said. According to Mei, she and her fellow passengers fell on their backs as a result of the collision.

One commuter posted on social media that she was on the train that crashed into the one in front.

As if delays on two separate train lines weren't troubling enough for commuters, some had to contend with injuries sustained from a collision on tracks.

SMRT and the Land Transport Authority are investigating the incident, the train operator said. At 8.19am, a second train stopped behind the first faulty train, but a minute later, the second train moved forward unexpectedly and came into contact with the first train.
