A man from Victoria has been found guilty of culpable driving after he hit an oncoming car, killing three members of one family.
The Victorian County Court has heard Gurwinder Singh, 25, lost control of his Ford Falcon after overtaking a semi-trailer before crashing into a VW Golf, driven by Basil Rehe, 55.
Mr Rehe, his wife Robyn Rehe, 45, and his sister Suzanne Rehe were killed in the fiery crash near Merton, northeast of Melbourne in May 2009, which left a 12 year old girl orphaned.
Three others were seriously injured.
Singh was speeding, overtaking several vehicles and driving in a grossly negligent fashion before the crash.
Today the County Court jury found Singh, of Murrumbeena, guilty on three charges of culpable driving causing death and three of negligently causing serious injury.
Singh was remanded in custody for sentencing at a date to be fixed.
