Learner driver is charged

Police investigating a fatal pedestrian collision in the Macarthur Region yesterday, July 27, have charged a man with being an unaccompanied learner driver.

About 7.30pm  emergency services were called to Wilton Road, Appin, following reports a pedestrian had been struck by a car. On arrival officers from Campbelltown Local Area Command found a 40-year-old Rockdale man had been hit by a Subaru Liberty in the southbound lane of Wilton Road and died at the scene.

The driver of the Subaru, a 47-year-old man, was uninjured and was taken to Campbelltown Hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing.

A crime scene was established and an investigation launched by officers attached to the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit.

The driver of the Subaru was later issued with field court attendance notices for being an unaccompanied learner and not comply with licence conditions. His licence was also suspended and the Subaru Liberty was seized for further mechanical examination.

The man is expected to appear at Campbelltown Local Court on August 18.

Investigators, who would still like to speak to any witnesses to the collision and have urged them to come forward, will prepare a report for the information of the Coroner.
