Driver charged over fatal Darling Downs crash on bail

A 29-YEAR-OLD man charged in relation to a fatal traffic crash near Jondaryan had his charges adjourned in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court yesterday.

Ryley William Woodyard was not in court for the brief mention of the matters but was represented by his Brisbane-based lawyer Terry O'Gorman.

Woodyard has not as yet been required to enter any pleas to charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death and driving while under the influence of liquor or a drug.

A 30-year-old woman died at the scene of the horrific single-vehicle roll-over near the intersection of Jondaryan-Evanslea Rd and West Prairie Rd about 4am Sunday, July 12, last year.

Two men injured in the crash were airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane while a fifth person in the car received minor injuries.

Early reports claimed a nearby farmer was woken by a member of the group in the car asking for help and he provided blankets and other assistance while waiting for emergency services to arrive.

Mr O'Gorman asked that the case be adjourned while he sought further material from the police and Queensland Health.

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck therefore remanded Woodyard on bail and adjourned the case for committal mention back in the same court on Thursday, June 30.
