A man has been charged with causing the death of Bath teenage cyclist Jake Gilmore by dangerous driving, after a fatal collision on Midland Bridge Road last November.
Jake, 19, was killed when there as a collision between a car and his bike on Midland Bridge on the evening of 16th November 2013.
The car driver, 53-year-old Raymond Isherwood, of Bennett Street in Bath, has been charged with:
- Causing death by dangerous driving;
- Failing to stop after an accident;
- Production of cannabis;
- Perverting the course of justice (by parking his car at Royal Victoria Park rather than at his home address, and concealing damage to the car);
- Failure to surrender to police bail on 30th April.
Isherwood was arrested in Swansea and appeared at Bristol magistrates court on 6th May.
He later appeared at Bristol Crown Court and has been remanded in custody pending a trial date.
The collision happened between Midland Bridge and Midland Bridge Road at 9.35pm.
Jake Gilmore was taken to the Royal United Hospital in Bath with life threatening injuries.
The vehicle involved did not stop at the scene. Jake suffered life-threatening head injuries and was found by a passer-by who called for an ambulance.
The teenager died from his injuries the next morning.
