Sydney Uber driver found guilty over passenger death

An Uber driver whose passenger died when he got out of the car and was hit by a bus in Sydney's CBD has been found guilty of negligent driving occasioning death.

Nazrul Islam, 32, had denied responsibility around the death of 30-year-old Englishman Samuel Thomas, who was struck at the intersection of Elizabeth and Bathurst streets shortly after 3am on June 17, 2017.

In Downing Centre Local Court on Monday, magistrate Mary Ryan found the driver "did not keep a proper lookout" when Mr Thomas opened the passenger door before accelerating.

She said both of the victim's "intoxicated" friends were awoken by the sound of the door and - as captured on CCTV on the bus - Islam's car's internal light also came on.

Six seconds of light within the car is a significant warning and, in my view, Mr Islam should have been alerted to something being amiss," the magistrate said.

Ms Ryan said the "only explanation is that Mr Islam was much more fatigued than he admitted" and she was not convinced he had slept during his breaks for as long as he testified.

She found the driver had worked for 21 hours before the incident and despite indicating he had seven hours of sleep, it was not continuous rest.

"I find that he is guilty of the charge of negligent driving occasioning death beyond a reasonable doubt," she said.

If the bus' video camera captured the guy getting out of the car and falling on the ground then why isn't the bus driver the one on trial ? If the Uber driver had no idea at the moment that the guy got out how is it his fault ?

This is just like usual where a judge just decides since someone got hurt that they are going to find a way to find the defendant at fault so they look good.

This is absurd.

Wake up Nsw, we have a corporation, not a government. A corporation masquerading as a govt. Corporations DON'T give a damn about us. Cv19 is a quantifiable FRAUD. A crime against HUMANITY. The virus fraud driven by mainstream media (criminals) and our paedophile corporate representatives are ushering in the NEW WORLD ORDER (Brutal Communism) in the West. The fake COVID crap is the Precursor to getting you to take the lethal jab which isn't a virus and the stab isn't a vaxxine. It's intended to kill you. Contains spike protein and lethal graphene oxide that turns you magnetic. The spike protein causes your body to attack you internally. Death is imminent. This is GLOBAL GENOCIDE. Wake up!!!
