Driver in fatal Jondaryan crash has case adjourned

A MAN charged in relation to a fatal traffic crash near Jondaryan last year has earned a lengthy adjournment so his legal team can cross-examine witnesses.

Ryley William Woodyard, 29, was not required to appear before the Toowoomba Magistrates Court for the brief mention of the matters.

Solicitor Sarah Gordon, acting for Mr Woodyard's legal firm Robertson O'Gormon Solicitors, asked the court for an adjournment seeking to cross-examine witnesses in relation to the charge.

Mr Woodyard has not been required to enter any pleas to the charges of dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death and driving while under the influence of liquor or drug.

A 30-year-old woman died at the scene of the horrific single-vehicle roll-over near the intersection of Jondaryan-Evanslea Rd and West Prairie Rd about 4am on Sunday, July 12, last year.

Two men injured in the crash were airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane while a fifth person in the car received minor injuries.

Early reports claimed a nearby farmer was woken by a member of the group in the car asking for help and he provided blankets and other assistance while waiting for emergency services to arrive.

Magistrate Bruce Schemioneck adjourned the matter to August 30 and said Mr Woodyard would not be required to appear on that occasion.
