Death crash driver, faces court

IVY LEA Lambert, the teenage driver involved in a fatal crash at Torquay last year, has appeared in court.

The 18-year-old was driving a Holden Apollo the night it crashed, killing 13-year-old passenger John-Henry Ronaki-Perkins.

Lambert briefly appeared in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court yesterday charged with dangerous driving causing death and grievous bodily harm.

The car was carrying six people when it crashed into a power pole at Cypress Street just after midnight on May 31.

Lambert and another teenager were seriously injured and had to be airlifted to the Royal Brisbane Hospital following the crash.

Three other passengers were taken to Hervey Bay Hospital with broken bones and bruising.

John-Henry died at the scene.

Lambert will reappear in court on February 25.
