A Singapore Mass Rapid Transit Cooperation (SMRT Cooperation) train of the East-West line collided with a stationary train at Joo Koon MRT station on Wednesday morning at around 8:00 a.m. local time, causing at least 23 people injured, local media reported.

Around 20 passengers were said to be injured in the incident and were taken conscious to Singapore General Hospital and Ng Teng Fong Hospital.

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

The platform at Joo Koon MRT Station has been partially cordoned off following a collision between two trains.

According to SMRT, a train heading in the direction of Tuas Link Station stalled at Joo Koon Station.

The first train collision occurred August 5, 1993, when an east-bound train stopped longer than scheduled at a station due to a technical fault and was then hit by another train, according to the National Library Board's resources.

Two SMRT employees and 23 passengers sustained light to moderate injuries and were sent to two hospitals, SMRT and Singapore's Land Transport Authority said in a statement.

As if delays on two separate train lines weren't troubling enough for commuters, some had to contend with injuries sustained from a collision on tracks. "SMRT and LTA are investigating the incident".

Facebook user Mei Anne wrote that she was a passenger on one of the trains, and hurt her back as a result of the collision.
