Case for fatal Childers crash mentioned in court
A MAN charged with allegedly causing a crash which killed a Sunshine Coast teen had his case mentioned in Bundaberg Magistrates Court today.
Dane Kieran Nightingale is facing one charge of dangerously operating or interfering with the operation of a vehicle causing death of grievous bodily harm.
He is also charged with driving while a relevant drug is present in his blood or saliva while being the holder of a learner, probationary or provisional licence.
The crash at Childers in July last year claimed the life of 18-year-old Bailey Pleydell from Sippy Downs, near the Sunshine Coast.
Nightingale’s lawyer Mary Buchanan told the court a brief of evidence had been received and that her client needed time to go through it.
The matter was adjourned to be mentioned again on October 15.
