A Melbourne Porsche driver has pleaded guilty to outraging public decency after filming the scene of a crash where four police officers died.

Richard Pusey, 42, was pulled over for allegedly driving his Porsche at 149km/h in April 2020.

Four police officers were standing in an emergency lane when a truck veered into the lane, striking and killing all four officers.

The 42-year-old pleaded guilty to three charges on Wednesday, including reckless conduct endangering serious injury by driving at high speeds and possessing MDMA.

The charge of outraging public decency related to Pusey's actions after the crash, where he pulled out his phone and started filming the crash scene.

"Amazing. Absolutely amazing. All I wanted to do was go home and eat my sushi and now you have f**cked my f**cking car," he said.

Senior Constables Lynette Taylor and Kevin King and Constables Glen Humphris and Josh Prestney died in the crash.

The body camera of Senior Constable Taylor also captured Pusey taunting her as she lay under the truck.

According to the footage, Pusey was shouting, "you f**cked my f**cking car" while she was dying, the court heard.

The 42-year-old later fled the scene and was arrested at his home. 

Police later discovered Pusey's video, which was shared among his friends on social media.

Victoria Police Minister Lisa Neville condemned his actions as "completely sickening and disgusting".

He is expected to be sentenced in April.

The truck driver, Mohinder Singh, has pleaded guilty to four charges of culpable driving causing death.

Singh will face another court hearing this week.
