Driver Charged Over Fatal Hunter Crash

Police have charged the alleged driver of a car involved in a fatal crash north of Bulahdelah earlier this month. 

It's claimed a car was travelling on Wooton Way on October 15 before leaving the road and colliding with a tree, killing a 37-year-old passenger. 

Detectives say the driver then fled the scene before emergency crews arrived.

A 39-year-old was arrested yesterday during a routine traffic stop on the Esplanade at Warners Bay. 

He's since been charged with a number of offences including negligent driving occasioning death and was refused bail ahead of facing Newcastle Court today.
