Police say a North Shore man was driving dangerously and without a licence when his vehicle struck another car, killing a young girl and seriously injuring three others.
Jordan Kenyon has been charged with multiple offences over the horror smash on the Hamilton Highway at Stonehaven late Wednesday night.
Mia Rossiter was weeks away from her 13th birthday when her life was ended by the smash, her seven-year-old sister Willow was hospitalised in a critical condition, as were the families parents Paul and Danica.
Police have charged Kenyon with breaching parole, driving whilst suspended, dangerous driving causing death and two counts of dangerous driving causing injury.
It’s alleged the white Holden Berlina he was believed to be driving at the time of the crash was earlier seen driving erratically and hooning.
A 21-year-old North Shore man who was a passenger with him at the time also sustained life-threatening injuries, and Kenyon was also taken to hospital but has since been released into police custody where he was questioned on Friday and charged on Saturday.
The 28-year-old has also had his parole cancelled, a hangover condition from a previous series of driving offences that saw him spend years behind bars.
Kenyon is due before the Geelong Magistrates court on Monday.
A GoFundMe page set up for the family has raised over $27,000 at the time of writing, and is designed to help the supplement the lost income they’ll suffer due to their injuries.
