Deputy mayor who crashed Ferrari sentenced to community service


The newly elected deputy mayor of Auburn, high-flying property developer Salim Mehajer, has been sentenced to 150 hours community service and been disqualified from driving after crashing his Ferrari and injuring two pedestrians.

Mr Mehajer lost control of his black $250,000 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti on The Boulevard at Lidcome on January 17.

The 26-year-old struck a mother and daughter, Nhu Hua, 68, and Teyet La, 40, on the footpath, leaving them with serious leg and pelvis injuries that required surgery at Westmead hospital.

The millionaire property developer was not speeding at the time of the crash and claimed that he had lost control of the 600 horse power vehicle when another pedestrian walked out in front of him.

But he was found guilty of negligent driving in Burwood Local Court last month, with Magistrate Brian Maloney noting that his initial report to police was different to that he later gave in court.

Today, Magistrate Maloney sentenced Mehajer to 150 hours community service and disqualified him from driving for 12 months.
He said the independent councillor had not been speeding or driving in a reckless manner but had been naive in his choice of such a powerful vehicle.

"You made bad choices and it ended in catastrophe," Magistrate Maloney said.

He noted that Mehajer made an important contribution to the community, both as a councillor and as the director of a not-for-profit organisation that worked with local communities.

I can almost guarantee that had the driver been an average joe with no money for big legal bills he would be behind bars atleast a year.

Well moral of the story, work hard to pay for good lawyers, it is worth it in the end.

But the article still says speed wasn't a factor  :confused: :confused:  (implying stupidity was)
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!
