Young Dutchman killed: Compilation of evidence continues


The court case of the 20-year-old driver who caused the death of a young Dutchman when he lost control of his car and mounted the pavement in St Julian’s is set to continue today.

Michael Caruana Turner, a fitness instructor, stands charged with the negligently causing the death of 19-year-old Tim Scholten, slightly injuring five other people, driving recklessly and driving drunk. He is pleading not guilty.

The accident took place in the early hours of 6 July. Caruana Turner’s Subaru Impreza mounted the pavement in Triq Gorg Borg Olivier, near the Neptunes waterpolo pitch, hitting a number of people. Tim Scholten was resuscitated at the scene but died some days later in hospital.

The decision to lift the house arrest, was recently replaced by a curfew, and this decision had been taken by Madam Justice Consuelo Scerri Herrera, following an application filed by the Attorney General a day after the arraignment. Caruana Turner had originally been granted bail but was also placed under house arrest.
