A Singapore Police Force spokesperson confirmed that a 41-year-old male bus driver and two female bus passengers, aged 25 and 36, were conscious when conveyed to the hospital.

Police investigations are ongoing.

NUS and SBS providing assistance to affected passengers

An NUS university campus infrastructure spokesperson said passengers who required immediate medical attention were conveyed to nearby medical facilities.

“Our priority now is to continue to provide all necessary support, assistance and care to the affected passengers while we assist the police with investigations,” the spokesperson said.

In response to Mothership’s queries, Grace Wu, SBS Transit's customer experience and communications vice president, said a passenger from each of the bus and the shuttle bus driver were conveyed to a hospital.

“We are also aware that passengers from both vehicles have also sought medical treatment on their own, and we are trying to get in touch with all of them, including through the University, to extend care and assistance as best we can,” Wu said.

She also urged those affected to contact SBS Transit through the email [email protected].
