A 25-year-old Hastings man has been charged with culpable driving after a fatal crash in Somerville earlier this month. Police believe the man was the driver of a white sedan that crashed into a tree on Jones Rd about 9.55pm on November 15. A 23-year-old Reservoir woman who was a passenger in the car died at the scene; the driver and another passenger were taken to hospital.
Major Collision Investigation Unit detectives have also charged the man with dangerous driving causing death, negligently causing serious injury, and dangerous driving causing serious injury. He was refused bail and will appear in court again later.
