A suspended driver who allegedly killed a young Sydney woman in a fatal hit and run at Milperra on the weekend has faced court after being tracked down last night.
36 year old Seng Hong Mam is accused of leaving 19 year old Natasha Gadd for dead after she was struck by a ute on Henry Lawson Drive at around 4.30am on Sunday.
Following 'extensive' investigations by the Crash Investigation Unit, officers attended a factory in St Peters at 8.30pm and located a white Toyota Hilux ute which has now been seized for forensic examination.
Detectives then attended a home in Old Guildford where Mam was arrested.
Detective Inspector Katie Orr says they hope his arrest brings some comfort to the family, "Yes we do we hope this provides some closure. They are aware of the arrest and although it won't bring their daughter back we know that hopefully it will provide some closure for the family."
Mam was charged with dangerous driving occasioning death, negligent driving occasioning death, fail to stop & assist after vehicle impact causing death and drive whilst licence suspended.
The police prosecutor told Fairfield Local Court Mam organised to have repairs made to his ute to conceal his involvement, while the Magistrate denied bail fearing he is a flight risk.
Mam will appear before Burwood Local Court on November 22.
