The Medina man now faces six charges including attempted unlawfully to kill, driver fail to report an incident occasioning death or grievous bodily harm, failed to stop and ensure assistance received after incident occasioning grievous bodily harm, used an unlicensed vehicle on a road and possess a prohibited drug. 

The man is due to appear in Rockingham Magistrates Court today.
