A WAN­GARATTA man has been charged over a col­li­sion on Ry­ley Street that trag­i­cally re­sulted in the death of lo­cal mother, Roberta “Bob­bie” Brown, 53.

Mrs Brown died on Jan­uary 16 after be­ing hit by a truck while walk­ing her dog, Milo, across Ry­ley Street at about 8am, a short dis­tance from her fam­ily home.

Po­lice have charged the 27-year-old driver of the truck with dan­ger­ous driv­ing caus­ing death, among other sum­mary charges such as fail­ing to give way to a pedes­trian at an in­ter­sec­tion.

The man ap­peared briefly at Wan­garatta Mag­is­trates’ Court on Mon­day, where he was bailed with con­di­tions to reap­pear in De­cem­ber.
