His lawyer didn’t dispute that his client was on drugs and driving the vehicle, but argued whether or not the drugs in his system were a sufficient element to make up the charge of dangerous driving causing death and that there was no evidence that showed the man's driving was dangerous.

"Nothing connects the manner, the style, the way of driving to the death of the unfortunate complainant in this case," he said.

However, the Magistrate stated that the matters were a question for a jury and committed the man to stand trial.
