SINGAPORE — Five people were taken to hospital after an accident outside Parliament House on Sunday (Nov 14) morning.

The accident involved two cars, a blue Honda and a black BMW, at the junction of North Bridge Road and Parliament Place at around 8.15am.

Photos circulating online showed a group of around a dozen people lifting the Honda and attending to an individual lying on the road.

Other images showed both vehicles had sustained significant damage.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said in a statement that it was alerted to the accident at 8.20am and took five people to Singapore General Hospital.

The police said that the five injured were the two male car drivers, aged 51 and 59, and three passengers aged between 28 and 61. All of them were conscious when taken to hospital.

Police investigations are ongoing.

A video published on Roads.sg Facebook page showed an in-car footage taken of the accident scene earlier, where the Honda beats the red lights at the traffic junction and is hit by the BMW coming from its left. 

The left signal light of the Honda is on when it beats the red lights, even though it is not on a left turning lane and a car has stopped at the lights to its left.

After the collision, the Honda flips a couple of times before turning turtle and landing with its wheels to the air.
