Last December, Wayne Chivell stopped at a red light on the Anzac Highway in Plympton, Adelaide and got out to talk to the driver in front of her.
He told the other man that the back door of his truck was open.
However, when Chivelle returned to the car, he accidentally hit the accelerator, pinning the truck driver behind the car.
A 66-year-old delivery driver suffered devastating injuries that required amputation of both legs below the knee.
A magistrate admitted that Tiber had remorse and disqualified him from driving for nine months. He was also fined $900.
Outside the courtroom, the former state coroner said he hopes to one day apologize directly to the victims.
“I am very much aware of the pain and suffering that I caused him and his family,” Tiber said.
“It’s something I deeply regret.”
