NSW truck driver charged over death of Soula Catsaitis




A truck driver has been charged with dangerous driving which resulted in the death of Soula Catsaitis on Mangrove Mountain in January.

56-year-old Soula was killed on the scene after a truck crashed into her Landcruiser on Wisemans Ferry Road on January 19.

According to The Daily Telegraph, the truck driver, Jeffery Michael Sankey, was not injured at the time, but was taken to the hospital to undergo mandatory testing.

The 69-year-old was granted conditional bail to appear before Gosford Local Court on Wednesday, February 7, but he provided the court with a medical certificate from a Woy Woy GP and was excused from attending.

Sankey will be required to appear in court on April 7, but will be able to be excused again if legally represented.

For Sankey’s case, police will be looking into documents containing “both physical evidence as well as dashcam footage” of the alleged offences.

Soula’s family held a funeral for her on Saturday, February 10 at St James Anglican Church in Wyong.
