The collision comes as the country grapples with recent service disruptions on its mass rapid transit system, including a partial suspension of services during an October weekend due to flooding in a tunnel following heavy rains.

The same morning, both the East-West Line and Circle Line were delayed because of a signal fault.

In a joint statement issued at 11.12am, SMRT and LTA said a train heading in the direction of Tuas Link station stalled at Joo Koon station at 8.18am. At least 10 emergency vehicles were seen outside the station.

Mr Ng, whose journey from Pioneer to Joo Koon took 40 minutes, realised something was wrong only when he saw commuters queueing to get out of the affected trains, and spotted police and SCDF officers at the station.

"There was a male customer who said he had fallen when the train came to a sudden stop".
