SINGAPORE - A teen driver was charged in court on Monday (April 24) with causing grievous hurt to another motorist at Kallang Leisure Park Mall carpark in August last year.

Herman Shi Ximu, 19, was driving a Nissan GTR at about 5.45pm on Aug 27 in the open space carpark at Kallang Walk when he allegedly failed to heed a stop line and give way to vehicles. This resulted in a collision with a Toyota car driven by Mr Teong Hien Sing, who was proceeding straight from Shi's left. Mr Teong, 66, suffered serious injuries to his ribs.

Shi was charged with causing grievous hurt  by performing a rash act so as to endanger life. He was unrepresented and indicated in court that he wished to plead guilty.

 

He will return to court on May 8.

If found guilty, he can be jailed for up to four years and/or fined up to $10,000.
