Twenty-nine-year-old denies causing the death of a Lyme Regis teenager by dangerous driving

A Colyton motorist has denied causing the death of a 17-year-old boy who was killed in a crash on the Devon and Dorset border last year.

Richard Weldon, aged 29, of Vicarage Street, Colyton, pleaded not guilty to causing the death of William Ure by dangerous driving when he appeared at Exeter Crown Court.

Mr Ure, who lived at Lyme Regis, was a front seat passenger in a black Honda Civic driven by Weldon which crashed into a tree on the A 3052 at Ware Cross , near Uplyme, on December 16 last year.

Both of them suffered serious injuries. Mr Ure was pronounced dead at the scene and Weldon was left in a coma but survived.

Judge Geoffrey Mercer, QC, adjourned the case for a trial on Monday, April 30, next year.
