A 75-year-old retired teacher who ran a red light and caused the death of a passenger in a lorry was sentenced to four months’ jail.
Pancratius Joseph D’rozario, who is married with three children, was also banned from driving for five years and fined S$5,000 (RM13,000) for causing injury to three others in the lorry. He drove his car into the junction of Victoria Street and Ophir Road on May 9, 2010 and hit the lorry, which flipped onto its side and landed in the middle of the junction.
This resulted in the death of Surjit Kour, 56, who was in the lorry.
D’rozario claimed the light was green in his favour during his eight-day trial. — The Straits Times / Asia News Network
