SINGAPORE — Four people were taken to hospital after a car mounted the pavement at Tower 3 of the Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) on Monday evening (15 April).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that they had received a call for assistance at about 6.10pm regarding a road traffic accident at the junction of Central Boulevard and Marina Way, where the building is located.

Four people were conveyed to the Singapore General Hospital, added the SCDF. It is unclear whether the driver is one of them.

“I saw five people waiting to cross the road and all were knocked down. Two seemed to be alright, but three (seemed bad). One of them was my colleague. Her injuries looked serious but she was conscious,” said eye-witness Jack Tan, a senior security officer in his 50s.

In videos circulating on Facebook, a large crowd could be seen gathered around what appeared to be a red Mitsubishi Lancer. Parts of the car and a collapsed bollard were seen near it, with SCDF and police vehicles in the background.

A handful of people were also seen at the grass patch in front of the crashed car and appeared to be offering assistance to others at the scene.
