Just listening to news talking about Pusey and his bail hearing, apparently he is a registered nurse so he had no excuse to not render assitance rather than video and mock dying police, man, I have more disgust for this insect than I do for the actual truck driver.

Best part of this was that his own lawyer didn't know he's a registered nurse. :sneaky:
Yes, the prosecution nailed him on that. Will be interesting what the courts decision is on bail when the judgement comes down. Hopefully sanity will prevail.

I read that as someone else, not the driver, from the trucking company has been charged as well. Could be a manager pushing the drivers too hard.

Driver was charged ages ago
The truck driver was charged in April with culpable driving but not charged with manslaughter until today. The manslaughter charge is consistent with a high degree of recklessness rather than just a failure to take reasonable care which is consistent with a culpable driving charge. I'm not aware of anyone else in the trucking company to be charged over the incident.

Manslaughter is a much more serious charge than culpable driving causing death and would indicate some other circumstances other than day dreaming such as under the effects of alcohol or a drug, or texting on a phone. I have no idea what the extenuating circumstances are in this case but just give those examples to indicate the difference

It's far from impossible that the media has gotten details wrong :rolleyes:, but the driver was 47 at the time of the incident. Even if he's had a birthday since, he's not 49 which the article mentions several times. It also talks about the driver by name, but not the 49y.o.

Mr 49 is described as being "from Frankston." Driver is from Cranbourne. Also, the police searched a place in Frankston "Linked to his employer."

It will be interesting to see if they can make such a charge stick to a manager.
I never heard the explanation of why the truck veered across the road.
