Train collision[edit]

On 5 August 1993, at around 7.53am, two trains collided in the station. It appeared that one train had stopped at the station for longer than usual after experiencing a technical fault, and then a second westward train hit the first. 156 commuters were injured, many of whom were on their way to work. Eight were admitted to three hospitals, while the rest received outpatient treatment.

An independent panel was subsequently formed to conduct an inquiry into the accident. It was later discovered that some 50 litres of oil had spilled from a locomotive doing maintenance work on the track in the pre-dawn hours of 5 August. SMRT staff had been alerted to the spill and had dispatched a cleaning crew to the neighbouring Buona Vista station, but approval to access the tracks was delayed. Ten trains had reported difficulty braking on the track that morning, whereas the 11th train had to use its emergency brakes upon reaching the station. While the 11th train was waiting for the brakes to be recharged, the 12th approached the station and could not brake in time to avoid hitting the 11th train.[3]
