The police will call 10 witnesses in the case against a man who faces a charge of allowing a drink-driver, who was later killed in a crash, to drive his car.

A Christchurch District Court registrar has set April 26 for the full-day hearing before a judge.

Benjamin Peter Beazley, a 22-year-old Opawa contractor, denies a charge of abetting Tarrin Kayne Alderson by allowing him to drive in Flaxton Rd, Rangiora, when he was so under the influence of drink that he was incapable of having proper control of the vehicle.

Police allege Beazley was a passenger in the car Alderson, 18, crashed into a power pole on May 25. Alderson was not wearing a seatbelt and died of his injuries.
