Tourist Charged Over Levin Crash

July 16, 2018

A woman in New Zealand on holiday has today pleaded guilty to careless driving causing death after a fatal crash near Levin last week.

 

The victims were her parents, who were passengers in the rented people mover she was driving.

 

Evvon Le Fern Tiang, a 33-year-old Malaysian national, appeared in the Levin District Court charged with two counts of careless driving causing death.

 

Tiang pleaded guilty to both charges, which related to the single vehicle crash which happened near the corner of SH1 and Lindsay Road at about 7.30pm on July 9.

 

Judge Edwards said the tragic outcome of accident was far greater than the error Tiang made, and that she did not see the need to punish her further with a fine.

 

Tiang was convicted and disqualified from driving for 12 months for each of the charges.
