A man who fatally ran over teenager Elijah Doughty a year ago in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, has been found not guilty of manslaughter.
The man admitted he was driving dangerously when he chased the 14-year-old Aboriginal boy down a track at an estimated speed of 67km/h, but denied he was criminally negligent.
The trial lasted four days and almost seven hours of deliberations came to the result.
The verdict handed down to the man carries a three-year prison sentence - considerably less than the maximum possible manslaughter sentence of life in jail - with parole possible in February due to the man being remanded in custody since August 2016.

He was also disqualified from driving for two years.
Members of the public reportedly yelled abuse at the man before the court was adjourned.
At the same time, a large protest crowd gathered in Kalgoorlie as the verdict was delivered. Justice. When do we want it?
