Porsche driver Richard Pusey slapped with new charges

A Porsche driver accused of filming a police officer in her dying moments following a horrific truck crash that killed three other officers has been hit with new charges.

Richard Pusey was on Wednesday charged by Victoria Police with committing an act outraging public decency and behaving in an indecent or offensive manner.

The 41-year-old is already facing 12 other charges over the fatal Melbourne crash including driving at a dangerous speed, reckless conduct endangering life, fail to remain after a drug test, fail to render assistance, fail to exchange detail, possessing drug of dependence, destruction of evidence and three counts of commit indictable offence.


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.

I wonder if he would have so many charges if it was normal citizens who have been killed and not police who are expected to put their lives on the line.

I hope he would!! It was totally and utterly appalling behaviour. Drugs have addled his brain! Disrespectful and depraved….he belongs behind bars!

Ha ha ha.

I hope that s*** stain never sees the light of day again.
