Three people were taken to hospital after an accident between two cars and a van on the Seletar Expressway (SLE) yesterday.

Police said they were alerted to the accident on the SLE towards the Bukit Timah Expressway at 5.57am.

A 65-year-old driver and his two passengers, a 36-year-old woman and a 42-year-old man, were conscious when taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, police added.

The Straits Times understands that the three were in a Honda car when the other car, a Jaguar, crashed into it.

All three suffered minor injuries to the neck and back, and no one in the other two vehicles was hurt.

In a video shared on Facebook, a vehicle, understood to be the Jaguar, can be seen travelling at a high speed down the rightmost lane of the expressway.
