SINGAPORE - Deciding he needed to nap before completing his drive home early one morning last July, Anderson Rozario Esep M stopped his lorry, killed its engine and turned off all the lights before going to sleep - in the middle of the expressway.

About 30 minutes later, a van collided into his lorry from behind.

Its driver, Mr Chin Kin Siong, 52, suffered multiple injuries, including fractures in the torso and pelvis and a crushed leg. He died a few hours later in hospital.

Yesterday, Rozario, 24, pleaded guilty to causing Mr Chin's death by a rash act last July 30.
