It was 6.30am when abang Kader Shaik Hussain Kader Batcha was driving alon Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1.

He turned into Bishan Rd thinking that all was OK since the light was green.

The next thing the 61-year-old abang knew, he had run over a woman jogger.

The incident took place on 8 May last year.

The woman, 57-year-old aunty Tay Lee Huay, was jaywalking – the pedestrian crossing showed a “red man” at the time.

To his credit, abang Kadar did stop his taxi, tend to the injured Tay, and call for an ambulance.

Tay was sent to hospital but died about 3 hours later from injuries to her head.

Abang Kadar has been fined S$7000 and banned from driving for 3 years for negligently causing Tay’s death.
