MAJOR Collision Investigation Unit detectives charged a man last week in the wake of a fatal crash in Seaford, Sunday 1 October.
Police had attempted to intercept a blue Mitsubishi on Overton Rd about 1am but it did not stop and was later found crashed into a pole. A 23-year-old Seaford man was found dead in the back seat.
The police dog squad was called in and the alleged driver, a 28-year-old Carrum Downs man, was later allegedly found hiding in a boat at a Seaford property.
He was charged with culpable driving, dangerous driving causing death and failing to remain at the scene of an accident. He appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Monday 2 October and was further remanded to a later date.
A 24-year-old Frankston woman was released pending further inquiries.
Police media officer Belinda Batty said investigations into the incident would be overseen by Professional Standards Command.
