Driver charged

A 28-YEAR-OLD Evanston Gardens man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, following a single car roll-over which resulted in the death of another Evanston Gardens man last week.

The man was driving the vehicle when it rolled over into a ditch on the side of Steingarten Road, Rowland Flat, on Monday night last week.

Police and emergency services were called to the crash site at 11.45pm, but the 34-year-old passenger died at the scene.

The death was the fourth fatality on local roads this year.

Major Crash investigators arrested the driver, who was bailed to appear in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on May 2.
