Fresh charges are expected to be laid against a man accused of killing family man Craig Smith in a crash at Turvey Park. 

Father-of-three Craig Smith was pulling out of his workplace to see a client when his ute collided with a blue Commodore sedan on October 23 last year. 

The crash took his life. 

Ashmont’s Joshua Aaron Byrne, 20, is facing five charges including dangerous driving occasioning death, two counts of causing bodily harm by misconduct in charge of a motor vehicle, negligent driving occasioning death and aggravated dangerous driving.  

Director of Public Prosecutions representative Andrew Hanshaw requested an extension for the brief of evidence deadline in Wagga Local Court on Wednesday. 

“There will be further charged laid in the interim,” he said. 

Byrne, who was present in court, will remain on bail. 

Batlow’s Mathew Thomas Cahill, 18, is also charged with dangerous driving occasioning death with a back up charge of negligent driving occasioning death in relation to the incident. 

The brief of evidence is expected to be served by April 24.

Both accused will return to court on May 2.
