Student receives maximum fine for accident

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 17, 2007

A motorist was taking his passengers home late one evening when it skidded, went up a centre road divider and overturned on the opposite side of the road. A rear right passenger died about two months after the June 15, 2006 accident.

On Monday, second-year polytechnic student Shawn Goh Jin Fa, 24, was given the maximum fine of $10,000 and banned from driving for five years for causing the death of Mr Taqdir Buang, 23, through his negligence.

One of the two other passengers was treated as an outpatient while the other was given two weeks’ medical leave. (story)
