- Passengers managed to escape and there were no injuries
- Authorities blamed underground metro line construction for the incident
- Traffic along the area was diverted
The incident took place around 2:30 pm, on a stretch where underground metro construction is going on. Giant cranes arrived in ninety minutes on spot to retrieve the trapped vehicles.
Traffic along the area was diverted.
"It appears to be due to the impact of the metro rail work. It's a lesson for us. The stretch will be fixed and traffic restored by tomorrow evening," Mr Jayakumar said.
Both the car and the bus were removed with tow trucks brought in by the fire department.
