An 18-year-old man has appeared in court charged with causing the death of Lucia Porter by dangerous driving.

Fourteen-year-old Lucia died following a crash on the Switchback road near Peel in March.

Craig Ryan Bridgewater, of Carmane Close, Peel, is also charged with driving without insurance and driving as an unsupervised provisional licence holder on March 8.

He was bailed, with the condition he cannot leave the island without the court’s permission, and is to re-appear in court on July 31.

Another man appeared in court – separately from Mr Bridgewater – but in connection with the same incident.

Andrew James Reeday, aged 19, of Ballakillowey, Colby, is charged with permitting no insurance, and causing or permitting no driving licence and a third charge of wasting police time, all of which are alleged to have been committed between March 7 and 10.

His case was adjourned until June 19. He too was bailed with the condition he cannot leave the island without the court’s permission.
