Drunk learner driver who killed a granddad in high speed crash to be jailed

A drunk learner driver who killed a beloved and respected grandfather in a high speed crash is set to be jailed for her actions.

Alisha Fagan pleaded guilty to speeding through an intersection and subsequently failing to give way in a horrifying crash near Sunshine in Melbourne on June 9, 2022.

The crash left grandfather Sedat Hassan dead after the 22-year-old ploughed her Audi into the side of his Honda sedan, killing him on impact due to "excessive speeds" which launched his car away.

Sedat's car forcefully pushed 25m away from the point of impact, a court heard.

At the time, Fagan gave police a fake name and attempted to blame the deadly crash on a group of four African men who she says fled the car upon impact.

Her bag was searched at the time and in it were keys to the car, four xanax tablets and a kitchen knife, news.com.au reported.

The County Court of Victoria has said it is highly likely Fagan will be jailed for charges of dangerous driving occasioning death and drug possession.

Judge Scott Johns made it clear to Fagan's family that they should not "hold out false hope" and that the she will likely be headed to jail.

She was released on bail last year after 76 days behind bars on remand, but a court has since heard Fagan had "very concerning driving behaviours" before the fatal crash.

Judge Johns noted Fagan had made "good progress" with her rehabilitation, with her sentencing delayed to August, which prompted complaints from prosecutor Kristie Churchill.

The judge noted the "enormity of the loss of the deceased" but adjourned court until later this year.

He added: "Deferral of sentence doesn’t mean that those concepts of accountability or giving weight to general deterrence and denunciation and just punishment are being displaced; they’re simply being deferred."
