SINGAPORE — A man who caused the death of an off-duty female police officer was charged in court on Thursday (25 April).
Andrew Charles Vasko, 51, was charged with causing the death of Salinah Mohamed through a negligent act not amounting to culpable homicide on 10 February, at about 9.23pm, as the police officer was crossing a signalised junction which was green in her favour.
Vasko, an American, was alleged to have failed to keep a proper lookout and give way to Salinah while making a right turn with his car from Maxwell Road into Shenton Way.
The Singapore permanent resident will be next in court on 16 May.
Salinah, 41, fell into a coma following the incident and was eventually taken off life support by her family.
She was heading home after work when the accident happened.
If convicted, Vasko faces a jail term of up to 2 years, or a fine, or both.
