Marulan man sent to jail over Hume Highway deaths

A Marulan man who crashed into two vehicles on the Hume Highway - killing both motorists - will spend 18 months in jail.

23 year old university student Sarah Frazer and Mittagong tow-truck driver, Geoffrey Clark were killed instantly when a courier truck smashed into them in February 2012.

Crown prosecutors say it took only 8 seconds of distraction for the 26 year old driver of the truck Kaine Barnett to loose control of his vehicle.

Mr Barnett was found guilty in Goulburn District Court in March, of two counts of dangerous driving causing death and was in court today, for sentencing.

Goulburn MP removes Planning boss

Local MP and new Planning Minister Pru Goward has wasted no time in stamping her authority, axing the boss of her department just hours after being sworn in.

A spokesman for Ms Goward has confirmed Sam Haddad has been removed.

Mr Haddad will be replaced by a department secretary, who will serve ministers in three portfolios: environment and heritage, local government and planning.

He's been the state's top planning bureaucrat since 2005.
