Australia: Fatal crash accused bailed for fifth time

Article here. Excerpt:

'It was almost inevitable that a catastrophic event would flow from Alisha Jane Fagan's driving, a magistrate has told her.

Despite opposition from the grieving family of Melbourne grandfather Sedat Hassan, the woman accused of killing him has been freed on bail.

It's alleged Fagan, 22, was doing at least 78km/h in a 50km/h zone when she smashed into Mr Hassan's car in Sunshine West on June 9 this year.

She denies being the driver, but DNA on the driver's airbag is a match to her with a probability of one to 100 billion, magistrate John Hardy was told.

The charge of dangerous driving causing death is the 14th matter Fagan currently has before the courts. She was on four counts of bail at the time of the crash.

Fagan has been held in custody at Melbourne's women's prison, the Dame Phyllis Frost Centre, since June.
She wore a rosary around her neck and cried heavily throughout the bail application on Wednesday morning.'
