2 hurt in Serangoon Road bus-taxi crash
Another SMRT bus has been involved in an accident on Friday (June 5), the second accident involving their bus in as many days.
Today, the SMRT bus was involved in a collision with a taxi at Serangoon Road at 7.30am.
It is unclear how the accident happened but a photo of the accident on Twitter showed the crumpled front of the taxi.
The 39-year-old male taxi driver and a 74-year-old female bus passenger were injured and taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

When The New Paper visited the scene, the taxi had been towed away while the SMRT bus sported a large dent on the right side of its bumper.
An eyewitness said that the accident caused a 400m jam on the two-lane road.
Mr Patrick Nathan, SMRT's vice-president of corporate information and communications, said:
"The 45 passengers on board the SMRT bus were safely transferred to the next bus.
"Investigations into the incident are currently being carried out."
