Hayden Currie briefly faced Melbourne Magistrates Court on Thursday charged with two counts of culpable driving causing death and one of negligently causing serious injury following the crash at South Oakleigh on Sunday. In the video above: Mum's heartbreaking tribute to daughter killed in Oakleigh crash. Court documents allege the year-old was travelling at an "extremely high speed" on Ferntree Gully Road when he T-boned another car, killing year-old Shannon Juriansz instantly.

The impact pushed the victim's car about 60 metres along the road where it burst into flames, a document prepared by Detective Senior Constable Morris states. The Mazda3 Currie was driving travelled a further 50 metres, crossing over the road's centre median strip and into oncoming traffic before stopping.

Det Sen Const Morris alleges Currie then got out of his car and called his father. Jacinta Barnett, a rear-seat passenger in the Mazda, was taken to hospital but could not be saved. An year-old male passenger remains in hospital in a critical but stable condition. Currie was arrested at his Bayswater North home on Wednesday and interviewed by police. He "declined to make any comment concerning the collision but admitted being the driver at the time".

Police are awaiting the results of a blood sample taken at the scene to determine whether Currie had alcohol or drugs in his system, as well as a report from a crash expert.

Currie was supported by his mother and father in court on Thursday.

As a woman who was barred from being a member of the French Academy of Sciences due to her gender, she was still the first person to be awarded two Nobel Prizes for her efforts.

While her research on radioactivity had a great impact on the practice of medicine that continues todaythe lack of understanding of the dangers of ionizing radiation at the time led to her eventual death. Let's take a look at the life, education, and discoveries made by this amazing scientist. Family fortunes were not great, and Maria lost her mother at age twelve from tuberculosis.

Even while her mother was alive, however, she received little affection from her mother, who was afraid she would infect her children. Maria's older sister, Zofia, tried to mother Maria following their mother's death, but she in turn died at the age of 15 from typhus. When she was 10 years old, Maria moved to attend boarding school in Warsaw.

Later, she was able to study in Paris at the Sorbonne with her sister's support. In addition to studying in Paris, Marie took courses in secret from the Floating University, an underground educational institution in politically turbulent Poland that educated women, and later also men. InMarie earned her second degree; this one in mathematics. Pierre Curie, an instructor of physics and chemistry.

Briefly separated when Marie returned to Poland, the two were married about a year later. Marie and Pierre had three children. Irene was born in A baby girl she delivered in died shortly after birth. Their last daughter, Eva, was born in Sadly, on April 19,tragedy struck again and Pierre was killed in a road accident.

Henri Becquerel soon discovered radioactivity while studying uranium salts. Marie took up the study of uranium rays, using a Curie electrometer. She was able to show that pitchblende, torbernite, and thorium were all radioactive. She published a research paper on her discovery, an unusual step for a woman in Pierre set aside his own research and joined Marie in her work.

By the summer ofthe Curies co-authored a paper on a new element, polonium. The day after Christmasa second paper came out, announcing the discovery of another new element: radium.

They continued working together until the tragic death of Pierre in a street accident in Soldiering on alone, Marie was able by to isolate pure radium from pitchblende.
