The mortgage broker was out on bail when he was pulled over for speeding on the Eastern Freeway around 5.30pm on 22 April.
As police were preparing to impound Mr Pusey’s Porsche, a large refrigerated truck ploughed into the officers as they were standing in the emergency lane.
Leading Senior Constable Lynette Taylor, First Constable Glen Humphris, Senior Constable Kevin King and Constable Josh Prestney all died at the scene.
Instead of helping Senior Constable Lynette Taylor as she lay dying on the road, Mr Pusey allegedly filmed the ordeal on his mobile phone before fleeing the scene.
Pusey remains in custody and is due to face Melbourne Magistrates Court next week, on 25 June.
