A total of 23 injured passengers were conveyed to hospitals - although the majority of them sustained only minor injuries, that means at least a couple of them sustained slightly more serious injuries due to the train collision.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) was informed of the accident at 8:33 am (UTC + 8:00), and rushed to the site.

In its first tweet at 8.25am, SMRT said that a "train fault" happened at Joo Koon station. At 8.19am, a second train stopped behind the first faulty train.

SMRT and the Land Transport Authority are investigating the incident, the train operator said.

A platform at Joo Koon MRT station has been cordoned off following the incident, according to videos sent to Channel NewsAsia.

A spokesman from Ng Teng Fong Hospital said among the 10 injured at the hospital, two were assessed to have sustained injuries under the P2 category or "major emergencies" such as limb fractures and joint dislocation.

About half the injured passengers were taken to the National University Hospital.

Passengers who posted on social media said that a number of those on the moving train fell when the two trains made contact.

Wednesday's collision was the latest knock on Singapore's reputation for slick infrastructure after the city-state witnessed a commuter chaos earlier this year.

She also posted a close-up shot of parts of the trains that collided, but we can't discern any noticeable damage.
