Driver who killed relative pleads guilty

A CORAKI man who police allege was drunk when he crashed a car on Naughtons Gap Rd in March, killing his 23-year-old relative, will be sentenced in the District Court this month.

Tyrone Williams, 18, appeared at Lismore Local Court yesterday to answer charges including dangerous driving occasioning death, negligent driving occasioning death, mid-range drink driving and driving with an illicit drug present in blood relating to the March 6 crash.

The court heard Williams, who had been granted Supreme Court bail to attend Alstonville's Namatjira Haven Drug and Alcohol Healing Centre, had completed the program.

Williams's solicitor Ms Anderson-Clark entered a guilty plea to the charge of dangerous driving occasioning death.

Prosecutor Ms Coxon withdrew two charges.

Magistrate Jeff Linden committed Williams to be sentenced later this month.
