Australian man charged over fatal jet-ski crash

AN AUSTRALIAN man has been charged with negligent homicide after a collision between two jet-skis killed a 16-year-old girl in Keehi Lagoon, Honolulu. ''I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I can't believe what I did. I'm so sorry,'' witnesses heard him say.
A forlorn-looking Tyson Dagley, 20, appeared in a Hawaii court on Friday in a blue T-shirt and neck brace from injuries he sustained in the crash last Sunday. He was held in custody on $100,000 bail and could face up to a year in prison.
Several reports from the court said Dagley's address was Brunswick West, Melbourne, although the Department of Foreign Affairs said he was from Queensland.

His lawyer, Walter Rodby, said Dagley was ''heartbroken'' but did not remember what had happened. ''He wasn't intoxicated. There was no malice. There was no intent. It was simply an accident.''

The Australian consulate-general in Honolulu was assisting Dagley and his family, said a Foreign Affairs spokeswoman. Dagley is back in court on Tuesday.
Kristen Fonseca, 16, from California, died of a brain injury after hitting her head on her jet-ski. Witnesses said Dagley was speeding and not looking where he was going, local media reported.
Glenn Cohen, owner of Aloha Jet Ski Rentals, told police Dagley was travelling at 64-72km/h and watching his girlfriend on the dock when he crashed, according to court documents. But Dagley's girlfriend reportedly told police he was travelling at slow-to-medium speed and looking ahead.  

Deleted videos retrieved from her camera by police reportedly showed Dagley standing up on his jet-ski moments before the collision.

A voice was heard yelling, ''Watch out,'' just before the crash, the force of which drove Dagley's jet-ski into the air.

Ms Fonseca's stepfather, Mario Canton, told reporters he was standing on the dock and saw her slow down moments before the crash, and Dagley was riding ''at a very high rate of speed on his jet-ski, looking toward the dock''.

Unfortunately Trailer Park Trash or losers are not confined to only one mode of transport, that being road / vehicular transportation.

It is a well known fact that boating and consumption of alcohol amongst the Aussie yobbos is the norm rather than the exception.

A senseless tragic waste of a life in the hands of an imbecile.

In order to conceal incriminating evidence, the girlfriend of the accused, deleted videos taken moments prior to the incident that resulted in a death.
