Mr Muhammad Azril Mahmood is still in Intensive Care Unit but in a stable condition.

"He's depressed and keeps blaming himself," Mr Azril's father-in-law Mohamed Kassim Yusoff told Shin Min Daily News.

"But there are counsellors helping him and we, too, try to comfort him."

Mr Kassim, who lost his granddaughter, 17-year-old Afifah Munirah Muhammad Azril, in the crash in Tampines on April 22, told the Chinese daily he was angry about the accident but "time heals".

The driver allegedly responsible for the crash that claimed the lives of two victims, 42-year-old Muhammad Syafie Ismail, was charged on April 25.

He was charged with dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving causing hurt, reckless driving and failing to stop after an accident.

According to charge sheets, Syafie allegedly failed to stop on a red light and crashed into two cars before hitting another.

The first car that was hit spun before overturning and collided with a van, which in turn crashed into a minibus.

The two victims who died in the accident were Afifah and 58-year-old Norzihan Juwahib.

Other than Mr Azril, the injured victims were Ms Lee Yau Meng, 42; Mr Wang Haifeng, 42; Mr Chia Tong Chai, 64; Mr Mohammad Azman Mohd Enjah, 39; and two 11-year-old boys.
