This Thursday night, five innocent people were taken to the hospital after a taxi, which had been involved in a road accident a few moments before, crashed into an outdoor sitting area of a bar along the East Coast Road.
The police said a call was received at about 9pm Thursday night about an accident between a car and a taxi. The ComfortDelgro taxi was then said to have ploughed through a cafe – which was closed at the time – before slamming through a low wall and landing in the crowded outdoor area of Georges Mad Bar & Grill where patrons were seated at tables. The Singapore Civil Defence Force said that the five people were taken conscious to Changi General Hospital. The causalities included three women and two men. Police are investigating the incident.
An eyewitness who only gave his name as Mr Deen, 24, told that he he had been drinking with his friends at the bar’s outdoor area when he heard two loud bangs. Before he knew it, the taxi crashed through the low wall and came to a stop after hitting a table beside his, which was occupied by about six people. He said: “One guy took most of the hit and he was dragged by the cab. But I don’t think he was seriously injured because he could still walk with assistance after that.”
