E-scooter teen who knocked into woman fined $2,200, compensates victim $465

A teenager who knocked into a pedestrian while on his e-scooter and left her with injuries was fined $2,200 on Monday (Aug 6).

Derrick Gan Zhong Kang, 19, will have to spend 10 days behind bars if he is unable to pay the fine, reported The Straits Times.

He pleaded guilty on July 24 to causing hurt to Ms Daisy Lim, 56, by riding in a negligent manner, and has since paid her $465 in compensation for her medical bills.

The accident occurred on March 16, at around 10.45am, when Gan was on an e-scooter with his girlfriend standing in front.

He was riding on a pavement when he overtook another e-scooter while approaching the back gate of Yishun Emerald condominium in Canberra Drive, Sembawang.

Ms Lim was stepping through the gate at the time and the two parties had a collision.
