Boy, 17, charged with dangerous driving causing death

A TEENAGER has been charged with killing a 14-year-old boy in a horror crash on Sydney’s Upper North Shore.

The teens were travelling in a car which collided with another vehicle at Thornleigh in November last year.

It was just after nine o’clock in the morning when the two vehicles came to grief on The Esplanade.


Sadly, the 14-year-old boy could not be saved and died at the scene.

The 17-year-old driver and the driver of the second vehicle, a 50-year-old man, both underwent mandatory drug and alcohol testing following the crash.

Following extensive investigations, police yesterday arrested and charged the 17-year-old boy, almost six months after the crash.

The teen was charged with dangerous and negligent driving causing death and released on bail to appear in court next month.
