Duncan Evans and Nathan SchmidtNCA NewsWire December 2, 2023 9:21AM The death of a top cop’s 18-year-old larrikin son has sent an emotional shockwave through the nation as Australians from every walk of life confront the shock of a sudden tragedy striking at a beloved family. Charlie Stevens, the son of South Australian Police Commissioner Grant Stevens, died after he was struck by a car in an alleged hit-and-run crash on November 17. His death hit home for thousands of Australians because of its apparent randomness and the recognition that, in the words of South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas, “bad things” can happen to good people. “They are good people. We all too often find ourselves desperately wishing that bad things don’t happen to good people. Yet too often that is the case, and this is clearly an example of it,” Mr Malinauskas said on November 18 on the day Charlie died. Charlie was farewelled in a funeral service at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday that shifted between tears and laughter as the thousand-strong mourners remembered the larger-than-life personality. ‘FORCE OF NATURE’ “We said you were a force of nature, full of energy, unstoppable. Unforgettable. “We are heartbroken (but) we can’t think of you without smiling. “We have missed you every day since we said goodbye and we will always miss you forever, Charlie boy.” Camera Icon Charlie Stevens’ parents Grant and Emma said their son was ‘unforgettable’.

Mr Stevens’ voice broke when he looked to Charlie’s friends and thanked them for being with the family in their time of grief. “It’s meant the world to us that Charlie’s mates have spent so much time with us since we lost him,” he said. “It warmed our hearts to have that group of boys just being in our home.” Charlie’s tearful mates remembered their friend, with Charlie’s loyalty, larger-than-life personality and devotion to friendship shining through in the speeches.

NCA NewsWire / Ben Clark Credit: News Corp Australia “What truly inspired me about you was your ability to live in the present … You were always smiling, always dancing,” one friend said. Another said: “Charlie loved people and people loved Charlie.” One friend promised to live a life Charlie would be proud of. The service started with Youth Group’s Forever Young sounding out through a packed William Magarey Room at the Oval. Charlie’s siblings Dylan, Josh, Tom and Sophie wrapped their arms around one another as they farewelled their brother. “Our hearts are shattering more and more, day by day,” Sophie said as she held back tears.

Brother Tom, whose song Great Big Sun opened the service, told the crowd he and his brother were “cut from the same cloth”. Camera Icon Mourners attended a twilight service celebration at Adelaide Oval to honour the life of 18-year-old Charlie. NCA NewsWire / Ben Clark Credit: News Corp Australia “I was so proud of the young man Links (Charlie) had grown into, leaving school and finding a passion for his new life on the tools,” he said. Towards the end of the service, the crowd stood for a minute’s silence to reflect on what Charlie had meant to them. Tom Rehn, a close family friend, closed the night with: “Charlie, we are so glad you lived. “We cherish the time we spent with you. And may your spirit live on through our memories.” Camera Icon Charlie was struck and killed in an alleged hit-and-run crash at Goolwa Beach while he was out celebrating Schoolies with friends. His death marked the 101st life lost on South Australia’s roads for 2023. NCA NewsWire / Ben Clark Credit: News Corp Australia Before the service, the Stevens family expressed their gratitude for the public’s expressions of sympathy and asked people to donate to Operation Flinders in lieu of flowers and also consider organ donation. “Sincerely thank you to everyone who has contacted us in some way. If we have not responded yet we will endeavour to do so as best we can and when we can. “Now is the time for us to regroup as a family and focus on how we move forward without our very special Charlie. “Thank you once again to everyone for all your kind support and love.” WHAT HAPPENED? Charlie was struck and killed in an alleged hit-and-run crash at Goolwa Beach on November 17 while celebrating Schoolies with his mates. Charlie suffered irreversible brain damage in the smash and his family said their goodbyes to him at Flinders Medical Centre alongside extended family. Charlie died at 7.01pm on November 18, becoming the 101st person to die on SA roads this year. The first details of the alleged hit-and-run emerged in court documents on November 20. Camera Icon The service featured a photo montage of Charlie’s life. NCA NewsWire / Ben Clark Credit: News Corp Australia Three witnesses, who say they were waiting with Charlie on Beach Rd for a shuttle bus to take them back to Victor Harbor from Goolwa Beach, say they flagged down the accused driver, Dhirren Randhawa, 18, to see if they could hitch a ride. There was not enough room in the car and the witnesses say Mr Randhawa drove away before making a U-turn. He then allegedly sped up and started travelling on the wrong side of the road before hitting Charlie, court documents reveal. There is no suggestion of animosity between the groups. Accused Charlie Stevens hit-and-run driver Dhirren Randhawa leaves Christies Beach Magistrates Court after being granted bail on November 20, 2023. But Montana Rose Bowd, an eyewitness from inside Mr Dhirren’s car, tells a different story, according to the court documents. Ms Bowd states some males were on the western side of the road and partially on the footpath, but there was also a male on the eastern side of the road. She says a male from the eastern side ran across the road into Mr Randhawa’s car, according to the court documents. The police have charged Mr Randhawa with causing death by dangerous driving, aggravated driving without due care, leaving the scene of a crash after causing death and failing to truly answer questions. If he is found guilty, he faces a maximum jail term of 15 years and disqualification from holding or obtaining a driver’s licence for 10 years. THE LETTER A shockwave of pain engulfed South Australia immediately and the heartache swept across the country following the release of a public letter from Charlie’s parents just days after his death in which they refer to their son as “101”. “I am writing this sitting in a bedroom with dirty clothes on the floor, an unmade bed, six drinking glasses lined up on the bedside table, an empty KFC box next to the glasses, wardrobe doors left open and a row of skateboards leaning on the wall – it is a mess and it’s perfect. This is where 101 lived,” Mr Stevens wrote. “Cheeky, intense and funny – a loveable ratbag from the moment he could talk. He was as frustrating as hell, but he was also the kid who would look after others, befriend the lonely, and help those who were struggling. “Intensity shone through as 101 committed to each new passion – Lego, BBL, scooters, footy, cricket, basketball, surfing, downhilling, Fortnight and his skateboard – it was all or nothing and it was always all. Tom Rehn breaks down as he reads Grant Stevens' powerful letter paying tribute to his son Charlie, who was tragically killed in a hit-and-run crash. “101 is Charles Stevens – Charlie, Charlie Boy, Chas, Links, Steve. You lived life and gave so much to so many. You were a force of nature and we will never forget your beautiful cheeky, disarming smile. “Son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, friends, workmate, teammate. So much more than just a number on a tragic tally.” The remarkable letter produced a flood of tears. Sunrise host Natalie Barr broke down live on TV, while her co-host Matthew Shirvington read an excerpt from the letter, his own voice breaking at one point.

NCA NewsWire / Martin Ollman Credit: News Corp Australia The letter has now been preserved in Australian parliamentary history after federal Opposition Leader Peter Dutton read the letter to the House on Tuesday in tribute to Mr Stevens and his family following a conversation with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese. “Son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, friend, workmate, teammate, so much more than just a number on a tragic tally,” he read. The Opposition Leader took a pause during his speech, appearing to be in tears, as he read the letter in which Mr Stevens recalled his late son as a “loveable ratbag from the moment he could talk”. WHAT HAPPENS NOW? Charlie’s legacy will live on and not just in the minds and memories of those he touched. Mr Stevens told mourners that Charlie had signed up to become an organ donor, something they talked about when the teen first got his driver’s license. And Mr Rehn told the FIVEaa radio station on Friday morning it was understood Charlie’s kidney had been given to a local father of four. “He (the father) was on dialysis and given a month to live and now gets a brand new kidney and another chance at life,” Mr Rehn said. Mr Malinauskas announced on Thursday the state government would donate $100,000 to Operation Flinders in honour of Charlie after his parents asked the public to support the charity in their son’s memory. Operation Flinders runs eight-day programs in the Northern Flinders Ranges for 13 to 18-year-olds, where young people trek up to 100km, experience Indigenous culture, abseil and learn bushcraft. Mr Malinauskas said the donation reflected how deeply Charlie’s death had affected South Australians. “This contribution is an appropriate way for us to show our support for Grant, Emma and the Stevens family,” he said. “Operation Flinders does important work improving the lives of young South Australians, and this is a fitting way to honour Charlie.” Camera Icon Deputy Commissioner Linda Williams and South Australian Premier Peter Malinauskas speak with the media after Charlie’s death. NCA NewsWire / Kelly Barnes Credit: News Corp Australia Operation Flinders chief executive David Wark said the organisation was “humbled” by the donation and would work closely with the Stevens family moving forward to ensure Charlie’s legacy lived on through the hundreds of other young people Operation Flinders would help. “We will strive to ensure Charlie’s legacy will be recognised through programs and opportunities which will impact on young people the Stevens family will never meet, which is the ultimate act of generosity,” he said. Charlie’s death has also cast a torchlight on the horror year on South Australian roads and the devastation caused to countless families. There have now been 105 lives lost on the state’s roads this year and it’s shaping to be the worst for fatalities in more than a decade. In a special feature from November 22, the Adelaide Advertiser paid tribute to every life lost on the roads this year. Alex “Tucka” Henschke, 23, was the 27th person to die on the roads after his Yamaha bike crashed into four cars on Port Rd in Adelaide. Tatiana Tenikoff, 22, became the state’s 54th fatality when her Toyota sedan veered off the road and crashed into a tree on Uley Rd, Uleybury. When Archie Harrowfield, 17, became the 74th fatality, his brother Jamie O’Callaghan wrote on social media how “unfair” it seemed. “If I could trade all my years left for you I would, without a blink. For one more day, one more conversation,” he said. The government has introduced tougher measures to crack down on dangerous driving. Camera Icon Charlie was larger than life. NCA NewsWire / Ben Clark Credit: News Corp Australia The “extreme speed” laws that came into effect in late 2022 ramp up penalties for offenders. The legislation applies where a driver exceeds the speed limit by 55km/h or more on a road where the speed limit is 60km/h or less or exceeds the speed limit by 80km/h or more on a road where the speed limit is more than 60km/h. “The offence is punishable by imprisonment and a minimum period of licence disqualification,” a government spokesman said. From January 1 next year, new laws will create a new offence of “causing death or serious harm by careless use of a vehicle or vessel”, lifting available penalties from a maximum 12 months imprisonment to five years imprisonment for a basic offence, seven years aggravated. Minimum licence disqualification periods will also increase from six months to one year basic and three years aggravated. “Notably, these are only the mandatory minimum starting points for licence disqualification, and courts will impose longer periods where appropriate,” the spokesman said. South Australian Police Assistant Commissioner Ian Parrott also confirmed that police were monitoring legislation to assess if there were any “gaps” in the laws. “We are always considering legislation,” he said.
