A removalist truck driver’s been charged after a Bulli Pass crash last month that left one dead and three critically injured.

On February 16 a Hino truck collided with a BMW SUV and a barrier on Lawrence Hargrave Drive, ejecting two passengers from the truck – one of whom died at the scene.

The driver was airlifted to hospital to undergo surgery before being released; the other male passenger of the truck and the female driver of a BMW were also airlifted and remain in hospital.
