Murray Bridge woman charged over pedestrian’s death
Plus intruders unscrew a shed wall during a break-in on Howard Road.
A Murray Bridge woman has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving after a fatal accident in the Adelaide Hills on Monday.
The 38-year-old woman allegedly hit a pedestrian with her car on Mount Barker Road at Totness, just after 11.15pm.
The 31-year-old Mount Barker man was taken to hospital but died of his injuries on Tuesday evening.
Police say the woman agreed to have a breath test at the scene, but refused to do another after being taken back to a police station.
She was charged with failing to submit to a breath test, driving while disqualified, doing so with a child under the age of 16 – her 13-year-old son – in the vehicle and, after the man’s death, with causing death by dangerous driving.
She was refused bail.
Shed wall unscrewed during Murray Bridge break-in
Intruders have unscrewed a shed wall in their desperation to break into a Murray Bridge business, police say.
Sometime between 2pm on Tuesday and 8am on Wednesday, someone cut a wire fence and gained entry to an industrial business on Howard Road, near the Hound Hut.
They then unscrewed metal sheeting from a shed to get inside and ransacked the place.
It was not immediately clear whether anything had been stolen.
Still, Murray Mallee police want to know more.
Anyone with information about the break-in, or who saw any suspicious activity in the area at the time, should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or at www.crimestopperssa.com.au.
