Investigators have laid additional charges against the driver of a car involved in a fatal crash in the Southern Tablelands last year.
Officers from the Crash Investigation Unit (CIU) had been investigating a two-vehicle crash on Binda Road at Binda, 22km north of Crookwell, at 11:15am on December 7, 2019.
NSW Police said a Toyota Landcruiser towing a trailer was driving north when a collision occurred with a Hyundai Accent, being driven in the same direction.
"A passenger in the Toyota, a 62-year-old woman from Flinders, died when the 4WD rolled, the driver, a 63-year-old man, suffered multiple injuries and was taken to Canberra Hospital in a serious condition," they said.
The Hyundai driver, 29-year-old Natasha Elizabeth Naughton, was taken to hospital for mandatory tests.
Following inquiries, investigators charged Naughton in May 2020 with three offences:
- Negligent driving occasioning death
- Negligent driving (occasions grievous bodily harm)
- Cut in front of vehicle after overtaking
Naughton remains before the courts.
Following further investigations, she was charged on August 12 with three additional offences:
- Dangerous driving occasioning death - drive manner dangerous
- Dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm - drive manner dangerous
- Cause bodily harm by misconduct, in charge of motor vehicle
Naughton appeared before Goulburn Local Court on August 19. The case was adjourned to a later date for a brief to be presented to the court.
