Thirteen people were injured after a Mount Alvernia mini-bus crashed into a bus stop along Braddell Road today (Jul 26) at around 12pm.

Photos and a video of the accident's aftermath posted on The Straits Times show the brown bus on a pavement against the flow of traffic underneath a shelter.
The bus stop was strewn with shattered glass.
The driver's door of the mini-bus was dislodged and it can be seen against a nearby fence. A concrete pole had also toppled over as a result of the accident.

The area was cordoned off and there were police officers at the scene.

The Straits Times understands that the mini-bus driver suffered serious injuries and was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH).
