Pusey denied WorkSafe fatal crash report

·1-min read

Porsche driver Richard Pusey has been denied access to a WorkSafe Victoria report into the Eastern Freeway crash to use as part of their bail application.

The 43-year-old, who uses they/them pronouns, has been charged with allegedly posting graphic images online from the 2020 crash that killed four police officers.

On Tuesday, they asked the Supreme Court to release a collision report and a copy of WorkSafe's workplace manslaughter policy to assist their bid for freedom.

Pusey also asked for copies of WorkSafe's responses to letters the 43-year-old sent them.

They also made a bizarre application for copies of a documents relating to a kitchen installer who they were in a financial dispute with in 2016. The documents included the tradie's resume and trade certificates and his VicRoads demerit point history.

All were denied by Justice Lesley Taylor, who said it was simply not the right forum for those matters.

"What happened on the Eastern Freeway is not relevant," she said.

Pusey's bail application will continue on July 8 after they requested an earlier date be pushed back for medical reasons.

A medical procedure later in June would put them "out of action" for seven days, they said.
