Teen who crashed his Nissan GT-R into Toyota sentenced to 6 weeks' jail

A 19-year-old driver was sentenced to six weeks' jail and disqualified from driving for 1½ years on Oct 17 for causing grievous hurt to another motorist by performing a rash act.

Herman Shi Ximu had previously pleaded guilty to the offence on Oct 4.

He was caught on video speeding with his Nissan GT-R in a carpark near the Singapore Indoor Stadium and crashing into a Toyota Corolla on Aug 27 last year.

The driver of the Toyota, contractor Teong Hien Sing, suffered broken ribs from the accident.

The police arrested Shi on Aug 29 and Traffic Police impounded the supercar.

A report by a Health Sciences Authority forensic scientist indicated that Herman was driving at a speed of between 104kmh and 121kmh at that time, reports The Straits Times.

Shi is now out on bail of $10,000 and will surrender himself at the State Courts on Dec 1 to begin his sentence.

For causing grievous hurt by performing a rash act, he could have been jailed for up to four years and fined up to $10,000.
