A drug-stricken driver who killed a popular young surfer and seriously injured his girlfriend after crossing the wrong side of a highway in regional Western Australia has been stuck for six years.

New Zealand Andrew Jon Simon, 37, had methamphetamine and cannabis in his system when he met 20-year-old Lachlan & # 39; Lachie & # 39; Yeo and Annie Riley, then 22, crashed on the Bussell Highway in Yalyalup, Busselton.

The WA court heard that Simon was a long-term drug user and was tired in the & # 39; coming down & # 39; phase before the crash.

He claimed that he had not used meth that day and could not remember why the collision occurred.

& # 39; He rode along, there was a song on the radio – that's the extent of his memories, & # 39; said his counselor.

She described Simon, a truck driver, as a & # 39; well-functioning user & # 39 ;.

Mrs. Riley fought tears when she personally delivered her victim impact statement and described how she was trapped in the wreck when she heard Mr. Yeo breathe.

& # 39; I screamed for him. I screamed and screamed that this was not real, & she said.

& # 39; It's constantly in my head.

& # 39; Part of me died in the crash with Lachie.

& # 39; He's on the other side and I just want to talk to him. & # 39;

Mrs. Riley said she was furious that her partner had been taken from her because of a life-destroying medicine.

Mr. Yeo's father, Simon, told the court about his destruction when he heard from the police that his eldest son had failed.

& # 39; The next time we saw him he was in the mortuary, seized his future, & # 39; said Mr. Yeo.

& # 39; It was set up for a great life. He often talked about having a family. & # 39;

Yeo said his son was hugely missed by a wide circle of friends and family, including four younger brothers who had idolized him.

& # 39; What remains is a torn and sad family that can no longer be the same.

& # 39; A dark cloud is before my eyes … it will never be clear. & # 39;

The prosecutor said that Simon continued to insult after the crash.

He was found with drugs and drove despite his driver's license being suspended, and was caught driving and driving an unlicensed car with fake plates.
