Man gets 7 months for causing death during test drive

Posted by jtsmyth8 on October 24, 2007

A man who caused the death of a young sales consultant while test-driving a sports car two years ago was jailed seven months and banned from driving for 10 years on Wednesday. Regan Lee Da Wen, 26, originally accused of causing death by dangerous driving, admitted to an amended charge of causing the death of Ms Angelia He Xueli, 22, by a rash act along Upper Paya Lebar Road on Oct 29, 2005.

Ms He, an only child, died of multiple injuries about an hour later in hospital.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Imran Abdul Hamid said Lee, now unemployed, was driving at a fast speed in the open-top convertible with Ms He beside him when he failed to control the two-seater after negotiating a left bend.
