Man charged after fatal crash to face court again


An Avenell Heights man charged with multiple offences relating to a fatal crash in Bundaberg will remain behind bars for now.

The 27-year old was arrested on Monday night after an allegedly stolen car lost control on Bourbong Street and mounted a curb.

A 63-year-old pedestrian from the Sunshine Coast died at the scene.

The accused briefly appeared in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on Tuesday charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle and burglary.  He was additionally charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death and driving without a licence.

The case was adjourned until September after a brief mention in the Bundaberg court on Wednesday.
