SINGAPORE: A 40-year-old driver has been fined S$7,500 and banned from driving for 42 months for causing the death of an elderly pedestrian.
On 22 January this year at about noon, Chang was driving along Telok Blangah Road towards Pasir Panjang when his car ran into the elderly couple.
He had shut his eyes for three seconds while driving because of fatigue.
Before the accident, the credit officer had been gambling at Resorts World Sentosa casino for 15 hours.
When he dozed off at the wheels, Chang veered to the left of the road and into the bus bay.
Mdm Ler Sock Hua, 70 and her husband, Yeo Ah Bah, 73 were standing at the bus stop, waiting to cross the road.
The collision killed Mr Yeo and seriously injured Mdm Ler. Full story
