Bail extended for accused death crash driver

Taylar AmoniniNorth West Telegraph

A road train driver has appeared in South Hedland Magistrate’s Court in relation to the death of two travellers in June last year.

Kimberly Thomas De Pledge, 47, was charged with two counts of dangerous driving causing death and three counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm last year after he allegedly hit the back of a caravan, forcing it onto the wrong side of the road and into the path of an oncoming Toyota Prado.

Mr De Pledge was granted a two-month remanded committal mention while a report from a crash reconstruction expert is prepared and will face the magistrate again on March 15.

No plea was entered and Mr De Pledge’s bail was extended until March.

The case will be held in the District Court once a plea is entered.
