SINGAPORE: Two e-scooter riders were injured on Wednesday (Dec 20) after a collision with a van.

The accident happened at the junction of Geylang Road and Lorong 10 Geylang. Channel NewsAsia understands that the two riders were on the same e-scooter. 

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said it received a call at around 5.15pm and one ambulance was sent to the scene. Both riders were conscious when they were taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
