Family disgusted at truck driver’s attempts to evade responsibility

Ken Pillar, the truck driver convicted of causing the death of local teacher, Maria Dowdell has reportedly appeared to pass out three times during a court hearing yesterday.

As Maria's daughter Nikki read out the victim impact statement Pillar blacked out three times while in the docks. The family say they are disgusted and insulted by his attempts to evade responsibility.

Pillar, who appeared to black out many times during the trial, claimed that's what happened the night of the incident. However the prosecution argued it was all fabricated.

He was convicted in December.
