Woman was already on bail for driving offences before deadly crash



A woman allegedly responsible for a horror crash that killed a Melbourne grandfather was already on bail for a series of driving offences.

The horror crash occurred on Thursday when a white Audi sedan and a gold Honda sedan collided at the intersection of Links and Glengala roads in Sunshine West just before 1am.

The collision killed 69-year-old Sedat Hassan.

Police said at the time of the crash 22-year-old Alisha Fagan was driving on a suspended learner's permit which had been cancelled for six months for previous driving offences.

Officers allege Fagan was breaching bail and after the crash, she blew 0.027 on a breath test.

Fagan also had a kitchen knife in her bag as well as two and a half pills she claimed were prescription Xanax.

Grandfather Sedat Hassan was killed in the Sunshine West crash.

The court heard Fagan told police she was a back seat passenger in the white Audi that didn't give way and crashed into Hassan's driver's side.

Police also said Fagan claimed three other men, including the driver who she'd met that night, fled the scene while she stayed.

But detectives allege she was driving and it was one of her passengers who came forward and told police.
