The two men charged in connection with the fatal tipper truck crash in Lansdown Lane in Bath last year appeared before Bath Magistrates Court yesterday, ahead of the case being heard at Bristol Crown Court.
Phillip John Potter, 19, of Dauntsey, Wiltshire, was charged in December with two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
Matthew Gordon, 29, also of Dauntsey, Wiltshire, was charged with two counts of aiding, abetting, counselling and procuring/aiding and abetting causing death by dangerous driving and two counts of aiding, abetting, counselling and procuring/aiding and abetting to cause serious injury by dangerous driving.
Gordon was also charged with one count of dangerous driving.
A Scania tipper truck lorry, driven by Potter and carrying aggregate, collided with two pedestrians and several vehicles in Lansdown Lane in Bath, just after 4pm on Monday 9th February 2015.
The lorry then overturned onto a taxi near the bottom of the hill. The three men inside the Volvo car died at the scene from their injuries.
Four-year-old Mitzi Rosanna Steady died after being hit by the lorry. She had been walking with her grandmother, who sustained life-changing injuries.
During their court appearance, neither Potter or Gordon entered a plea and were released on bail, ahead of a preliminary hearing on 22nd February at Bristol Crown Court.
