A truck driver who allegedly ploughed his semi-trailer into four police officers on the Eastern Freeway may have been suffering from a lifelong undiagnosed psychiatric illness, a court has heard.
Mohinder Singh fronted court charged with four counts of culpable driving causing death following the death of the police officers at Kew last week.
Defence lawyer Steven Pica said his client was “distressed and saddened by the tragic consequences” of the crash and had been suffering panic attacks and anxiety since.

He requested his client seek psychiatric assistance while behind bars.
The 47-year-old was charged by the Major Collision Investigation Unit and the Homicide Squad in the early hours of Monday morning.
Prosecutors requested 16 weeks to compile their brief of evidence - considerably longer than usual.
