    A judge has dismissed an appeal from the driver of a tourist bus that crashed near Queenstown, causing a girl and woman to lose limbs

    A judge has dismissed an appeal from the driver of a tourist bus that crashed near Queenstown, causing a girl and woman to lose limbs


    Chinese national Liang Fang appealed his sentence, stating a refused discharge without a conviction could affect his visa.

    He was driving a bus and trailer carrying 23 Chinese tourists when it crashed at Wilson Bay in January.

    A 10-year-old girl lost both hands and a woman lost an arm as a result of the crash.

    Fang admitted charges of careless driving causing injury and was sentenced in June.

    At the time, he was refused a discharge without conviction.
