Statement on behalf of Mrs Jean Hubbard

Media release on behalf of Mrs Jean Hubbard

Mrs Hubbard has today been advised of the Court's decision to convict Andy Earl of the careless driving charges he was facing. She respects the Court's decision based on the evidence it heard.

She bears no ill will towards Mr Earl or his family arising out of the accident.

Mrs Hubbard wishes to thank the Oamaru Police for the assistance they have provided her and for all of their hard work in investigating the accident. She also greatly appreciates the effort of all the witnesses who travelled to Timaru to assist the Court.

She welcomes the conclusion of the case so that both the Hubbard and Earl families can now move on with their lives, as her late husband, Allan Hubbard, would have wanted.

Mrs Hubbard and her family would also like to take this opportunity to thank friends and supporters for all their support since Allan's passing.

She does not wish to make any further statement on the matter. As previously, she and her family would appreciate their privacy at this time.

ENDS
