Driver who rammed crowd pleads guilty

Irish Examiner - - World News -

A man who de­lib­er­ately rammed a car into pedes­tri­ans in a busy Aus­tralian city street, in­jur­ing 17 peo­ple, has pleaded guilty to mul­ti­ple charges, in­clud­ing mur­der. Saeed Noori drove his mother’s car into pedes­tri­ans on De­cem­ber 21 last year, on a pave­ment in Melbourne, Aus­tralia’s sec­ond-largest city. The 33-year-old pleaded guilty in the Vic­to­ria state Supreme Court on Fri­day to the mur­der of an 83-year-old man. Noori faces a po­ten­tial life sen­tence on that con­vic­tion. He also pleaded guilty to 11 counts of reck­lessly caus­ing se­ri­ous in­jury, which car­ries a po­ten­tial max­i­mum of 15 years in prison, and five counts of con­duct en­dan­ger­ing life, which car­ries a po­ten­tial 10 years in prison.

He will re­turn to court for sen­tenc­ing in Fe­bru­ary.
