QE2 Drive crash death charge

A 62-year-old woman has been charged over the death of a motorcyclist in a crash on Queen Elizabeth II Drive in February.

The woman, a teacher aide, faces a charge of careless driving causing the death of Tyrone Tiatoa.

Her case was listed at the Christchurch District Court, but she was granted a registrar’s remand without having to appear before a judge.

The motorcyclist was killed in a collision with a car in Burwood about 9.15pm on Friday, February 9.

Police said the driver and sole occupant of the car, received minor injuries.

The registrar remanded the woman on bail to appear in court on August 3. At the request of defence counsel Steve Hembrow, the registrar also granted the woman interim name suppression.
