'Take me away'

Written By miftah nugraha on Jumat, 08 Maret 2013 | 19.55

A MAN accused of the manslaughter of his best mate at a buck's party begged police to arrest him at the crash scene.

The Supreme Court in Hobart has heard Nathan James Carins, 30, of Clifton Beach, was very distressed after the crash which killed Luke Cripps, 29, on February 25 last year.

Mr Carins has pleaded not guilty to Mr Cripps' manslaughter.

The Supreme Court has heard the 29-year-old died when a ute he was travelling in the back of flipped in a paddock. He was due to be married the following week.

Senior Constable Anne Marie Edge told the court she arrived at the crash scene about 11.30pm and spoke to Mr Carins.

"He held his hands out. He said 'Take me away, I've just killed my best mate, take me away, I've just killed my best mate', she said.

"He was distressed. He had clearly been drinking. I could smell alcohol on him. His speech was slurred. He was quite distressed.

"He kept saying to me again and again 'take me away'."

Sergeant Justin Lawson had arrived shortly before Constable Edge.

He said he saw a number of people frantically trying to free Mr Cripps from under the ute.

Sergeant Lawson said he used a winch on his police vehicle to move the car off Mr Cripps and performed CPR on him for 10 to 15 minutes before paramedics arrived. He said there was no sign of life.

The trial is continuing.
