Singaporean woman dies after Melbourne car crash left her in critical condition

A 20-year-old Singaporean woman died in hospital today (Nov 28), after being in a coma for four days since being involved in a car accident in Australia.

On Nov 24 at about 8.15pm, she was in a blue Renault which collided with another car in Windermere, more than 100km away from Melbourne.

The accident took place at the intersection of Remembrance Drive and Madden Road.

According to The Straits Times, the Renault then hit a nearby tree, which caused it to halt.

It left Ms Lok with critical head injuries.

Victoria Police released a statement today, updating the public on Ms Gwyneth Lok's condition.

The charges brought against Ms Nasuha Nasser, 21, who was behind the wheel of the Renault, will be reviewed, said Victoria Police today.

Nasser, a psychology and media and communications student at the University of Melbourne, was charged on Nov 25 with dangerous driving causing serious injury and negligently causing serious injury.

She is currently out on bail and is due to appear at Ballarat Magistrates' Court on Feb 21.

The New Paper reported yesterday (Nov 27) that doctors at Alfred Hospital in Victoria, Melbourne had told Ms Lok's family to be prepared for the worst.

Ms Lok, a project executive with events company Chupa, was one of five Singaporeans involved in the accident.

She had recently graduated from Ngee Ann Polytechnic with a diploma in early childhood education.

Victoria Police also said today that two other women, both aged 20, remain in hospital in a stable condition.

Nasser's twin sister Naimi is believed to be one of the two women.

The driver of the second vehicle involved in the collision, a 48-year-old man, and his passenger, his 10-year-old daughter, were not injured.
