Dan­ger­ous driv­ing

The Weekend Post - - Nation -

AN ADE­LAIDE driver who hit and killed a drunk pedes­trian has been found re­spon­si­ble for the death. Sasan Zar Sa­bet, 37, was found guilty of dan­ger­ous driv­ing caus­ing the death of Peter Chi­ap­petta in a late-night, high-im­pact col­li­sion at sub­ur­ban Hind­marsh in 2014. Mr Chi­ap­petta, who had a blood­al­co­hol level of 0.267 per cent when he was struck, was flung into the air and suf­fered mas­sive in­juries, in­clud­ing a sev­ered leg. Dis­trict Court Judge Geral­dine Dav­i­son found Sa­bet was speed­ing and should have seen the man cross­ing the road. Sa­bet faces a max­i­mum sen­tence of 15 years. He will re­turn to court in March.
