Driver’s son ‘sat in his lap’

`Police say the driver charged with the smash that killed six teenagers and left one fighting for his life has appeared in court at least eight times since 1992 for driving while disqualified.

And it alleged his four-year-old son was sitting on his lap at the time of the crash. [..]

Towle, 34, who was released from jail three months ago after serving 18 months for a firearms-related offence, held his head in his hands and ran his fingers through his hair yesterday as he faced up to the full horror of the charges against him: six counts of culpable driving causing death, four counts of negligently causing serious injury, one count of failing to stop and one of failing to render assistance.’
