Coroner: Yio Chu Kang crash a reminder to drive safe
A coroner reminded motorists to continue safe and considerate driving which they have learnt in driving school when he was giving his findings on Wednesday at an inquiry into the deaths of three men in a road traffic accident earlier this year.
"Otherwise it will end up with devastating circumstances,'' said State Coroner Imran Abdul Hamid after a joint one-day inquiry last month into the horrific fatal crash along Yio Chu Kang Road on March 2 this year.
The inquiry heard that student Rammohan Subash Nair, 24, was taking his three friends home after a drinking session when he lost control of his father's car at around 3am that day.
He was driving at an estimated 100 to 120kmh while negotiating a left bend on a slope when the car veered to the left, flipped in mid-air and hit a pedestrian crossing signboard, a concrete structure, a lamp post and a tree.
