BREAKING: The man charged over the death of Stephen Andrew Small in a road crash at Doonan in March last year has pleaded guilty.

Nathan Craig MacDonald appeared in Maroochydore District Court this morning, by videolink from prison.

He sat quietly behind a table, hands in his lap, shoulders slumped as the two charges against him were read.

He pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing Mr Small's death, admitting to being intoxicated at the time and leaving the scene before police arrived.

Mr MacDonald's sentencing has been delayed until May so a psychologist's report can be prepared.
