A 50-year-old man from York charged with dangerous driving over a hit-and-run in Roebourne two years ago has appeared before Karratha Magistrate’s Court. Police allege that Flint Edwards was the driver of a vehicle that struck a teenager on Andover Way on Saturday, September 15. Roebourne police charged Mr Edwards with dangerous driving occasioning bodily harm, failure to report an incident occasioning bodily harm and failure to stop and render assistance. Mr Edwards has pleaded not guilty to the three charges. In court last Wednesday, Karratha Magistrate Edward De Vries asked Mr Edwards’ counsel Leo Hartley if there was a possibility that Mr Edwards would be changing his plea to one of the charges and if this would alter the number of witnesses. Mr Hartley confirmed that would be the case and Mr De Vries said if the trial could be condensed to one day, local magistrates could deal with it. Mr Edwards will next appear before Karratha Magistrate’s Court on October 21.
