SINGAPORE - A lorry driver parked his vehicle in the middle of the expressway and went to sleep, and another driver was killed when he crashed into him 30 minutes later.

On Thursday, Anderson Rozario Esep M, 24, a Malaysian, was sentenced to nine months in prison, and banned from driving for 10 years.

A district court also imposed a prohibition order on Rozario for the same period, to stop him from driving into Singapore using a foreign licence.

He pleaded guilty last Monday to causing the death of Mr Chin Kin Siong, 54.
