    A texting driver who killed a Wellington cyclist is allowed to drive again

    A texting driver who killed a Wellington cyclist is allowed to drive again


    Khing Tiang Wong was driving on State Highway Two from Wellington towards Lower Hutt last February, when his van hit 65-year-old cyclist Brent Norriss.

    Norriss was sent flying and died at the scene.

    Wong was last year sentenced to home detention, and was disqualified from driving from 18 months.

    However, he's today been granted a limited licence.

    The 47-year-old appeared in the Wellington District Court this morning where a judge found he was suffering extreme hardship by not being able to drive, as he was at risk of losing his job.

    Conditions include Wong having to turn his cellphone off while in the car.
