The driver of a Nissan sedan that struck a 16-year-old push bike rider at Shellharbour in February was ran a yellow light and was speeding at the time of the fatal collision, police will allege.
The teen was critically injured when he collided with the car while crossing at the traffic lights on Wattle Road, near Benson Avenue in Shellharbour City Centre, on the evening of February 11.
Paramedics treated the boy for head and chest injuries, before he was flown to Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick, in a critical condition.
He tragically succumb to his injuries and died in hospital later that night.
The Nissan driver, Dimity Quinlan, was taken to hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing but released without charge at the time.
Meanwhile, officers from the Southern Crash Investigation Unit launched an inquiry into the collision.
Quinlan was subsequently charged in March.
She is facing a charge of dangerous driving occasioning death, a back-up charge of negligent driving occasioning death, and one count each of not stopping at a yellow light and exceeding the speed by more than 20km/h.
The Mercury understands the signposted speed along Wattle Road is 60km/h, meaning police are alleging Quinlan was travelling at 80km/h or more at the time of the crash.
Quinlan did not appear in Wollongong Local Court during a brief mention of her matter on Tuesday.
Instead, defence lawyer Robert Foster, from RMB Lawyers, emailed the court asking for the case to be adjourned for two months so police had time to serve their brief of evidence.
Registrar Bruiceen Coulthard agreed to the request and adjourned the case to July 22.
Mr Foster did not enter any pleas to the charges on Quinlan's behalf.
Meanwhile, the boy's father described his son as an "outgoing, loveable kid" when interviewed by the Mercury at the time.
"He never caused any trouble within the house or out on the streets," the father said.
"He was just hitting his senior years of high school and I told him how proud I was that he went that far.
"He had so much potential ahead of him."
