NSW man, 30, charged with driving without due care and attention causing death, failing to wear a seatbelt and using a mobile phone
A widower whose bride of 10 days was killed in a buggy accident on the couple’s tropical Queensland honeymoon has been charged over her death.
The 30-year-old New South Wales man was driving a registered golf buggy with his wife on board on Hamilton Island in June when they crashed.
The buggy tipped, leaving his 29-year-old wife with fatal injuries.
She died at the scene.
“My heart is broken and my world shattered with the tragic loss of the most beautiful girl in the world. my angel. my saint. my wife,” the man reportedly wrote on Facebook following his wife’s death.
“My rock, my partner, my confidant, my angel, my saint, my everything! The world will never be the same …
“I will love you forever and ever and EVER!”
Her husband has now been charged with driving without due care and attention causing death, failing to wear a seatbelt and using a mobile phone.
He is expected to face Proserpine magistrates court on 5 December.
