A Shepparton man facing serious charges in relation to a crash on Numurkah Rd last year will face court again on August 4.
Wesley Scott, 33, appeared at Shepparton Magistrates’ Court on Monday charged with 19 offences, including negligently causing serious injury, dangerous driving and reckless conduct endangering life.
Mr Scott was charged following a crash near the intersection of Numurkah Rd and Brauman St about 6.45
A woman in the other vehicle was trapped for more than 30 minutes and was airlifted to hospital.
‘‘It is a fairly serious motor vehicle accident with significant injuries,’’ lawyer Brian Birrell told the court.
Mr Birrell sought an adjournment to allow time to get an updated report on the medical condition of the other driver and to have a psychological report prepared on his client’s behalf.
Mr Birrell said agreement was still to be reached on which charges would ultimately proceed. Magistrate Barry Schultz adjourned the case for a further hearing on August 4.
