Singapore's mass-rapid rail system suffered its second collision since the network began in 1987, when a train operated by SMRT Corp. hit a stationary one Wednesday.

"23 passengers and 2 SMRT staff sustained light to moderate injuries, and have been conveyed to Ng Teng Fong Hospital and National University Hospital".

The Straits Times understands that the incident has to do with a malfunction of the new signalling system.

The Joo Koon station is on the East-West Line, popularly referred to as the Green line, and has 35 stations between the Tuas Link and Changi Airport.

Commuters reported on social media that passengers on the moving train fell down when the collision occurred.

A Singapore mass transit train collided early on Wednesday with another at a station, injuring 25 people, authorities said, the latest incident involving the city-state's railways.
