An elderly 71-year-old man had been riding ahead of a car along Tampines Expressway on 3 Sep 2017 when the car’s driver failed to keep a look out and hit him.

29-year-old Brian Li Xian Cheng was charged on Thursday (22 Feb) with causing grievous hurt to an elderly man by negligent driving.

Li was driving around 1.25pm when he hit the motorcyclist, who was in the same lane.

The victim, Ng Yoo Ay, has been in a coma since the accident.

Ng’s son has maintained hope that his father will regain consciousness one day, saying, "During (my father's) hospital stay, we discovered he has a lot of friends we don't know about. Hopefully with the positive energy and thoughts generated, my father can miraculously regain consciousness."

Li is out on bail of $5,000 and will be back in court on 15 Mar 2018.

If convicted, he faces a jail term of up to two years and fine of up to $5,000.
