A DANGEROUS driver who killed a father in a head-on smash on the Olympic Highway has pleaded guilty to manslaughter over the incident.
Lavington man Shannon Devos is still injured following the collision on August 14 last year.
He limped into a remote courtroom yesterday, assisted by crutches.
Devos has previously appeared before court in a wheelchair.
He spent weeks in hospital and was charged after being released.
The Douglas Road resident pleaded guilty to charges of manslaughter and aggravated break-and-enter via video link into Albury Local Court.
He has also admitted to another charge of aggravated dangerous driving causing death.
Father-of-three Bill Hardman, 44, died at the scene of the crash at Table Top.
Devos had been trapped in the car, that had been stolen during a break-in, following the collision.
Devos did not speak during yesterday's matter.
He did not apply for bail and will return to Albury District Court for sentence on August 12.
The 44-year-old Wagga man had been working for the Australian Military Bank.
Speaking following the incident, the Australian Military Bank's Bernadette Gates said colleagues were trying to support each other and Mr Hardman's family.
"Bill had only been with the bank for a short time, but he was a fabulous person," Ms Gates said.
"He was a hard worker with close links to his community.
"Anyone who knew him knew he was a football fan."
