Tuk-tuk coughs up cash after crash into grocer

A tuk-tuk driver who wasn’t paying attention paid for it on Tuesday night, literally.

Police said the man was driving at high speed when he realised the car in front of him had braked.

With no way to slow down, he veered to his left, and ploughed straight into a mom-and-pop grocer, slightly injuring the owner and doing a fair bit of damage to the shop.

No charges were filed as he admitted his fault and coughed up $380 to make it go away.
