Driver charged over boy’s death

Have your say

A man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving following the death of a teenager.

The 23-year-old is also accused of using a car with defective brakes and two counts of using a vehicle with a cut in the tyre fabric.

It follows an accident last November in Barton-upon-Humber in which 15-year-old Koen Allwood died. A 15-year-old girl who was walking with the Baysgarth School pupil was also badly hurt. The man, from Barton, is due to appear before magistrates on April 29. Another 23-year-old man who was arrested was released without charge.
