The Singapore Civil Defence Force said in a Facebook post that they were alerted to the incid ent near Joo Koon MRT station at 8.33am.

“SCDF resources are at the scene attending to the injured. Twenty-three injured passengers have already been conveyed to the hospitals, majority sustained minor injuries,” SCDF added.

About half the injured passengers were taken to the National University Hospital. Earlier on Wednesday, a commuter by the name of Mei Anne wrote on Facebook that the collision caused her and other passengers to fall on their backs.

The first major collision between MRT trains took place on August 5 1993, when a front-to-back collision occurred between two trains at Clementi MRT station.

The accident, which took place at 7.50am, left 156 injured commuters.

Several passengers were flung against panels and steel railings inside the train, while others were piled on top of one another.

An east-bound train from Jurong had reportedly stopped at Clementi MRT station for two minutes longer than scheduled due to a technical fault. It was then hit by another train.

Operations were affected at three MRT stations: Clementi, Buona Vista and Commonwealth and services resumed within a day after intensive checks by the MRT Corporation engineers. â€" TODAY
