2003 track incursion
On 3 March 2003, a 23-year-old drove his car onto an MRT track off Lentor Avenue, in the sector between Khatib and Yio Chu Kang stations, the first accident of its kind in the 15 years of operations. The accident occurred when the car, which was speeding at 87km/h along Lentor Avenue – the speed limit was 70km/h – mounted an 18cm kerb, crossed 6m of grass verge, jumped over a 1.5m drain, went through a fence 2m away from the track, and went uphill onto a steep stone embankment before landing on the track. Witnesses tried to remove the car from the tracks to prevent a possible collision, however an oncoming train from Yio Chu Kang stopped their efforts. One of the witnesses signalled the train driver to stop. Although the train driver was not able to stop in time, he was able to slow the train down enough to prevent derailment.
2015 track incursion
On 12 February 2015, a 29-year-old motorcyclist died after he was flung onto the MRT tracks between Khatib and Yio Chu Kang stations early on Thursday morning following a traffic accident on the Lentor flyover, similar to the 2003 accident.
