On April 7, 2016, one-year-old Shreyan Thapa was hit by an out of control car as he walking with his Grandmother along a street in Auburn, he later died from injuries sustained from the accident, and now, the 60 year old P-Plate driver has been charged with his death.

Yesterday a 60 year old woman was charged with negligent driving occasioning in death, her license has been suspended and she is due to face court in Burwood on the 25th July.

On the day locals and a doctor rushed to help the little boy before paramedics arrived, though he died later at Westmead Hospital. His grandmother was also taken to hospital where she was treated for shock.

This family is very much in our thoughts.

  • Such a tragedy.


  • Awful for everyone – so sad.


  • I agree with another MoM’s comment…A 60 yr old P-plater?? RIP poor Angel


  • He was such a beautiful boy. He lived too short! :-(


  • A 60 year old p plater, that’s what caught my eye. Old enough to know better. Maybe she should have just stayed unlicensed


  • In glad that charges have been laid, but so sad for the family. RIP little one


  • RIP little man. Taken way too soon. A tragedy that could have been avoided if she wasn’t being negligent :-(


  • This is horrible…wrong place at the wrong time. Poor little man


  • How does a family deal with this sort of loss? Just so sad.


  • Very tragic. Thinking of this family during this terrible time.
