A MAN has been summonsed to court following a fatal crash.

John Hughes, 44, from Colchester, sadly died after he was involved in a collision with a Ford Mondeo in Harwich Road, Lawford, on December 8 2018.

Following the crash police cordoned off a section between Garden City and Tile Barn Lane as they launched a forensic investigation into the smash and the events which led up to it.

Jack Robinson, 22, of Lydgate Close, in Lawford, has now been summonsed to face charges of dangerous driving and committing an act with intent to pervert the course of public justice, driving without insurance, failing to stop and failing to report a road traffic collision.

He is due to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on December 2.
