Reports delay two year old dangerous driving case

| 02/12/2014

(CNS): The trial for Fitzroy Roach (31) who has been charged with killing Beverly Elaine Ramsey (58) in a road smash more than two years ago has been delayed again. The trial is now set to start on 22 June next year. Roach is alleged to have been responsible for causing the death of the local taxi driver and mother of a senior serving police officer as they drove on Esterley Tibbetts Highway when the Nissan box truck he was driving stuck her Hyundai van. The incident happened on 16 October 2012 close to the AL Thomson roundabout at about 6am. The court heard Friday that the trial has been delayed as a result of problems relating to accident reconstruction reports.

Set to last seven days before a judge sitting alone Roach has denied driving dangerously and driving without being qualified. On the day of the road crash Roach was arrested on suspicion of DUI but no charges relating to driving under the influence have been brought. Roach was bailed to return to court for the trial next year.
