with one comment

A truck driver has gone on trial at the Lower Hutt District Court today, charged with killing one of New Zealand’s top police officers.

Desmond Wilson is accused of careless driving causing death, after hitting Superintendent Steve Fitzgerald in June last year.

Cyclist Mr Fitzgerald, national manager of police communications centres, died when he and a truck and trailer unit collided on a major intersection at The Esplanade  Petone while he was cycling home from work.

The case is expected to take four days.
