Minibus driver jailed 9 months for killing two pedestrians
A minibus driver was jailed nine months and disqualified from driving all classes of vehicles for eight years, after being convicted of killing two pedestrians in a horrific traffic accident in Nov 2011.
Yahya Abdul Kader, 47, had driven his vehicle up the pavement along Stevens Road killing two women Indonesian tourists, aged 22 and 28, in front of their families.
He hit them so hard, one was flung onto the road while the other flew over the side wall of the Social Development Network building into its compound.
Deputy public prosecutor, Ms Carene Poh, criticised Yahya's driving saying: "This particular act by the driver caused two deaths and much pain and suffering to the families of these foreign visitors."
