The Singapore Police Force (SPF) and the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they were alerted to the accident at about 8:45am on May 15.

The accident, involving two cars, took place near the junction of Bukit Timah Road and Kampong Java Road.

SCDF said that a few members of the public were performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on a person at the accident site when they arrived, and confirmed that this was the driver of the black car.

Emergency medical personnel then took over the resuscitation efforts.

SCDF said it will be reaching out to the members of the public who rendered assistance, to commend them for their public spiritedness.

A 45-year-old male driver was conveyed unconscious to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, while a 71-year-old male driver and his 42-year-old female passenger were conveyed conscious to Raffles Hospital.

SPF said that police investigations are ongoing.
