Singapore jails truck driver from Malaysia, who left scene of fatal hit-and-run to cross border

Instead of stopping after hitting a pedestrian in Singapore, Safuan Tehda, 35, continued driving towards Tuas Checkpoint and crossed the border. The pedestrian later died in hospital.

The law only caught up with Safuan more than six months later after he was arrested by Malaysian police and extradited to Singapore.

Appearing in the State Courts via video link on Wednesday, Safuan was sentenced to 23 months’ jail and was disqualified from holding or obtaining all classes of driving licences for eight years.

The former truck driver had pleaded guilty to three charges. The first charge was for driving a motor vehicle on a road without due care and attention, causing death, the second charge was for failing to stop after an accident, and the final charge was for obstruction of justice.

Three other similar charges were taken into consideration for sentencing.

Safuan’s sentence was backdated to March 15, which was when he was first remanded.

The court heard that Safuan was employed as a driver by Malaysian company, The Vanguard Logistics from September 2022 to August 2023.

On the evening of August 24, 2023, he collected medical supplies from a manufacturing plant located at Batu Kawan, Penang and placed the items onto the truck.

The next day, Safuan drove the truck into Singapore at around 7.27am to deliver the medical supplies to a logistics facility at 7 Bulim Street, and headed towards the Corporation Road slip road into Jurong West Avenue 2 after completing his task.

But along the way, at a zebra crossing at Bulim Avenue, Safuan encountered the 57-year-old victim Goh Eng Loo, who was crossing there at around 9.24am.

Court documents said that Goh had just gone for a job interview.

Instead of stopping before the zebra crossing, Safuan
