The 17-year-old driver has been charged with:
- Hit and run causing death
- Provisional driver with alcohol in blood
He has been bailed to appear before court on 10 October 2022.
Detective Senior Sergeant Brendan Lindner said: “A forensic toxicological analysis will be undertaken to determine the presence of illicit drugs."
Power Road has since been reopened to traffic.
