NSW truckie awaits verdict on fatal crash

A jury is expected to continue deliberations at the trial of a truck driver charged over the death of a 60-year-old woman on a Sydney pedestrian crossing.

Emmanuel Xiberras, 38, has pleaded not guilty to dangerous driving occasioning death and failing to stop and assist after the Brookvale crash that killed Jo-Ann Thwaites in May 2016.

The Crown says that if Xiberras was paying attention he would have seen Ms Thwaites on the zebra crossing, which was on a slip lane at an intersection.

The defence argued the truck driver had no idea that he had hit a person and had no reason to think that he had done so.

The son of the dead woman, Nicholas Thwaites, testified that he had offered to drive her home that day but she declined and decided to walk.

The NSW Supreme Court jury retired on Tuesday afternoon and is expected to resume its deliberations on Wednesday.
