Man, 18, charged in connection with fatal collision

An 18-year-old man has been charged with multiple offences after a fatal collision on the A422 last year.

The incident occurred shortly after 5pm on February 28, when a gold Range Rover Velar travelling towards Deanshanger on the A422, was in collision with a white Fiat Doblo van, a silver Ford Transit van, and a silver Audi A6.

As a result of the collision, one of the occupants of the Range Rover sustained fatal injuries and was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the silver Ford Transit van – a man in his 40s from Warwickshire – sustained serious injuries but has since been discharged from hospital to continue with his recovery.

Sofyan Amar, of Butterton Gardens, Broughton, has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, causing serious injury by dangerous driving and theft of a motor vehicle, in connection with the incident.

He will appear at Northampton Magistrates’ Court on February 6.
