Murray Bridge’s Teigan Hill appeared at Ararat’s Magistrates Court today and was denied bail over drug charges.
Hill was a passenger of the truck involved in the deadly collision yesterday morning near Pimpinio, charged with drug trafficking, possession and use.
The B-double truck was travelling on the Western Highway when its trailers dislodged, blocking the highway.
A bus then crashed into the trailer. The bus driver Emil Pich, 60, died at the scene.
The 36-year-old male truck driver was released from custody pending further enquiries.
Hill has been remanded, to appear in the Horsham Magistrates Court on July 29.
