At the time of writing, the authorities have cordoned off the scene and members of the public are not allowed to enter until the scene has been cleaned up. Also, the accident has caused a slight traffic jam in the area, so heads up if you’re using that road!

We pray for the driver’s speedy recovery. Hopefully, the escalator will be up and running soon so as not to disrupt commuters’ routine. Spread the word if you know someone who gets on or off at this station!
