Also if he hadn't been using the freeway none of it would need to have happened in the first place. He wasn't just doing a little over it was extreme

And more than once which is why the car was being impounded. He’s a repeat offender- look up his abuse towards a cancer victim as well

I don’t know the Victoria laws but in Queensland doing 40+ km/h is automatic impounding of your car.

Same in WA I think. Under hoon laws they'll impound your car immediately

He's not legally accountable for the accident. He's accountable for all of the other scummy things he did, though.

He walked away after an accident- it’s failure to render assistance which is a crime

REPLY

Failure to render assistance is not illegal in Australia. Sure, they'll charge him with it as they'll try and make as many charges
as possible stick, but it'll be thrown out.

It’s a failure after an accident
He didn’t cause it with his car he was running from the scene

It’s cruel filming and mocking a dying person

He wasn’t a by stander though, he was involved. So yeah, illegal .

If you are passing an accident, you have no legal obligation to stop and render assistance but if you are involved in any way then yes you have to. This is why Pussy is being charged with failure to render assistance

Not rendering assistance is not illegal - I know this for a fact. My dad is a lawyer and I am an investigator. Leaving the scene of an accident that you're involved in, yes, that's illegal.

^And adding to this, if any of you have done a basic first aid course, you'd learn that it is not mandatory to render assistance to the sick, injured or dying. If you do, however, and you f*uk it up (break ribs, etc...), you can't be sued and found liable for it, provided it is within reason - So, don't stomp or jump on someone's chest in place of compressions, for instance.

In some countries, if you render assistance, do it wrong and make it worse, you can be sued by the injured party. This is a big reason people don't render assistance - They think they'll be liable for failure to help, causing more damage, etc...

Well, the pitchfork gang is on the loose, confusing morality with legality.

So is Pusey being charged with an imaginary crime in your state? In WA, failure to assist and injured person which results in death means he could be imprisoned for up to 20 years

REPLY

^^No one is confusing morality with legality - just pointing out what a monster the guy is - we’re well aware of the difference and the possible charges he will receive.

REPLY

Clearly they are confusing the two, given they claim his failure to render assistance is illegal, and how abhorrent that act is. The latter is true.

REPLY

To the respondent noting the WA law - 20-year imprisonment, that would relate to the truck driver. Pusey, although a sh*tbag, was technically a bystander, so that does not relate to him.

REPLY
2 years ago
Yes he is a shitbag and one of his charges, among many, is failing to render assistance. No one is making that ip

REPLY

I have seen this too. He has many charges and that is one of them. The truck driver has his own charges too

The lack of response just confirms it's illegal

REPLY

New responder. From personal experience, the lack of response is a sign of realising that no matter how reasonable your response is- particularly if you know what you are talking about, you have 5 random ‘experts’ , come in and picking apart each syllable you write, and eventually it becomes so fruitless, that you just walk away. Just reading this thread beginning to end as someone with fresh eyes as I haven’t been following it, is purely exhausting. I think this escalated by people saying ‘wow, calm down’ when in fact she sounded completely logical and reasonable taking time to explain rather than one sentence experts. A lot of people use this site to take time away from their stress understandably as mums we do way more than we should..., but they inject all that pent up stuff here..Knowing it’s anonymous and has no consequences.. made worse by Coronavirus(as written about by a few papers- online bickering that is.). I won’t be commenting further..probably because I am wrong, right?

He is scum but But nothing is mentioned of the 40km/hr rule In a 100km zone that led to the truck driver ending up in the emergency lane anyway...whether he braked to avoid a car suddenly slowing down to 40 or took the emergency/shoulder as a split second decision to avoid hitting said car...the truck driver is at fault.

I can sort of half understand (a normal person) after the traumatic events if someone fled the scene because they were in fear or whatever 'fight or flight' as such, and then handing yourself in afterwards once you calmed down. But this (and his past) just shows what a true piece is sh.t this guy really is. Photos, gloating etc.. I hope he doesn't get out any time soon, it's utterly disgusting what he did and the video, what he said to a dying person and not even attempting to help any of them..going home to bed like nothing even happened. He only gave a crap about his car and some sushi...seriously? Why didn't his wife call police when he told her what happened that night? Have some common decency I don't care if it's your husband, that's not something to sweep under the rug and go to bed and sleep tight. 4 people just died in front of you and you care about the car the most?! Don't want to even begin to imagine how it felt begging for help whilst dying and getting that thrown in your face. Throw away the key for good on this one. He didn't kill them first hand, but his actions (illegal at that) led to them all having to be there, if he wasn't an idiot then none of this would've happened.

His actions after are what he is at fault for. He isn’t at fault for the truck plowing into them, that’s on the fuckwit truck driver. Fleeing is one thing, none of us know exactly how we would react when faced with that and as much as we would all like to say we would help, sometimes good people can run from fear or trauma. What this man did filming the police dying and complaining about his car is what makes him evil. The truck driver is responsible for 100% for their deaths.

ANSWER

He fled the scene of an accident not rendering assistance. That is illegal. And he took photos before he did so and posted them on his FB. Who does that ? He didn’t drive the truck but he holds some responsibility for sure.

Not only that the police officer who was trapped underneath was wearing a camera and there is footage of him sooking about his car and not caring about the people dying. Was also on drugs.

One of the officers was groaning for help and he filmed her and commented how ‘amazing’ it was watching her die. He is worse then the truck driver.

He is at fault ethically!!! What a tool. This incident has made me so angry and sad. I didn’t realise people like him existed. I hope he gets charged with every single charge possible. His behaviour lead to the police officers dying. His behaviour afterwards was purely evil.
