Dream life torn apart By MARGARET SCHEIKOWSKI Adrian ODaniel ADELAIDE: A grieving couple say they are now the walking dead and will never forgive the driver of a car which crashed, killing their only son and daughter. We hope this weighs heavily on your conscience, Lyn and Leigh Lyall said of the driver, Adrian Colin ODaniel, who faced a sentencing hearing in Adelaide Magistrates Court yesterday. Many people in the packed courtroom wept as victim impact statements by the parents, relatives, an injured passenger and two emergency workers were read to the magistrate. ODaniel, 21, has pleaded guilty to driving without due care or attention, causing the deaths of his good friends Troy Lyall, 20, and Shanae Lyall, 16, and causing serious harm to Jack Cave, 19. He lost control of a car on the way home to Kadina from a hotel in Bute, on the Yorke Peninsula, in October 2011. Prosecutor Michaela Ballard said more serious dangerous driving charges had been withdrawn, as the Crown could not prove that ODaniel was travelling over the speed limit or that he was over the alcohol limit. In their statement, Mr and Mrs Lyall said their family had been living the dream before the deaths of their children, who were happy and healthy with bright futures. Our house is so quiet now, they said. We feel we died too, we are the walking dead. The childrens uncle said he went to the hospital where his niece was declared dead and had to witness his sister, Lyn Lyall, repeatedly ask her baby girl to wake up. Defence barrister Marie Shaw QC submitted there was good reason to suspend any jail term, noting that ODaniel was only 21 and that he had no convictions. ODaniel will be sentenced at a date yet to be fixed.
