A divorced father-of-two has been charged with murder for allegedly crashing his Toyota LandCruiser four-wheel-drive at high speed into another car south of Perth.
Shaun Southern, 46, was charged in a bedside hearing at hospital where he is being treated for serious injuries following the February crash near Bunbury, in Western Australia.
Dashcam footage captured the dramatic moment his Toyota LandCruiser, driving on the wrong side of the Bussell Highway, crashed into a smaller Toyota RAV4 SUV, killing 61-year-old Busselton mother-of-two Jenni Pratt.
The impact left debris scattered all over the road, after his LandCruiser had narrowly avoided other cars.
WA Police have confirmed Southern has been charged with one count of murder, one act or omission causing bodily harm or death and reckless driving.
Southern is alleged to have driven his dark green four-wheel drive on the wrong side of the Bussell Highway, at Capel south of Bunbury, on Saturday, February 18.
The Bunbury man is remaining in custody, following his bedside hearing, and is due to remain in custody until his next appearance at Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court in Perth on March 29.
