    One of the charges was careless driving causing death and two of careless driving causing injury

    Jeff Tau Viriama, 43, collided head on with a Toyota on State Highway 1 near Tirau when he crossed the centre line on August 23.

    The crash killed Hamilton woman Alysia Jade Kelly, 27, instantly and put three other people - including Viriama - in hospital.

    Viriama's wife, who was a passenger in the vehicle remains in intensive care at Waikato Hospital after suffering a crushed torso and a fractured leg in the accident.

    The driver of the car Ms Kelly was travelling in also suffered multiple fractures to his arms as a result of the crash.

    Viriama's lawyer Thomas Sutcliffe has asked for a restorative justice conference to take place before his client's sentencing next month.

    He was further remanded on bail to reappear in the Hamilton District Court on October 26.
