The e-scooter rider, 18-year-old Nicholas Ting Nai Jie was charged in court today for causing grievous hurt to Mdm Ang Liu Kiow, after he collided into her while riding an e-scooter.

54-year-old Mdm Ang had been running errands and was walking in front of a bus stop at Pasir Ris Drive 1 on 17 Sept last year, when the crash occurred. Mdm Ang was so badly injured that she had to be hospitalised for three months and suffered life-threatening injuries.

Besides having to undergo two brain operations and having suffered multiple mini-strokes, Mdm Ang also went into a coma. Doctors at Changi General Hospital had told her family that her chances of waking up from the coma were slim and the family had prepared for the worst – until she miraculously woke up gradually in October.

Although Mdm Ang has now returned home, her medical and hospitalisation fees cost more than $100,000. While most of it had been paid by financial aid schemes, Mdm Ang’s husband, Mr Leong Loon Wah – who earns just over $1,000 a month working as an odd-jobs worker – was worried about his wife’s physiotherapy costs, according to an earlier newspaper report.

Mr Leong, who has been married to his wife for over 30 years, told reporter then:

“No matter how tough it gets, I’ll want to take care of her and stay by her side. After all, we’ve spent so many years of our lives together.”

 

Nicholas will return to court in November. If convicted for causing grievous hurt, he could be jailed for up to four years and/or fined a maximum of $10,000 for committing a rash act that endangered the personal safety of others.
