The man accused of killing beloved cyclist, father

A PROJECT manager from Warana is alleged to be the driver who struck and killed cyclist and father Cameron Frewer in November last year.

John Joseph Taylor, 43, remains on bail after a brief first mention in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court this morning.

Police allege on November 5, Mr Taylor dangerously operated a car on Caloundra Rd, Meridan Plains, and caused the death of Cameron David Frewer.

 

They further allege Mr Taylor drove while a relevant drug was present in his blood.

Court documents show Mr Taylor entered into a bail undertaking dated December 6, 2018, and his address has since changed from a Palmview to a Warana residence.

Mr Taylor's bail conditions require he must report to the officer in charge of the Kawana Waters police station every Wednesday between 8am and 4pm, commencing December 12.

He is also forbidden to attend within 100m of any airport.

Magistrate Haydn Stjernqvist today ordered Mr Taylor's bail be enlarged, and he return before court on February 22.

A full brief of evidence is required on this date.
