`A man let his four-year-old child steer his car at up to 150 kph before ploughing into a group of teenagers, killing six of them, a court has been told.

Thomas Graham Towle, 35, also stank of alcohol in the hours after the crash and had been cheating in his methadone program in the days before, prosecutor Jeremy Rapke QC told Mildura Magistrates’ Court. [..]

He is facing 17 charges including six of culpable driving causing death, over the alleged hit-and-run on February 18 in Cardross, near Mildura.’
