A man is due to be sentenced in September in connection with a collision in Kelvedon last year.
Liam O’Brien, 32, of Navarre Gardens, Romford had admitted charges of dangerous driving, perverting the course of justice, failing to stop at the scene of a collision, failing to report a collision, driving with no insurance, and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
He is due to be sentenced for these offences at Chelmsford Crown Court on 12 September.
It relates to a collision in London Road on 3 September last year.
Sadly, the driver of one of the vehicles involved, 30 year-old Max Mayo, died at the scene while two bystanders were seriously injured.
O’Brien was charged with causing death by dangerous driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving in connection with Max’s death and the injuries to the bystanders.
Following a trial at Chelmsford Crown Court, he was found not guilty yesterday (Wednesday 26 July).
Detective Sergeant Sam Nason, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said:
“My thoughts today are with the family of Max Mayo who I know miss him desperately. As well as those that were seriously injured.
“We carried out a thorough investigation into this collision and the jury have reached their verdicts after consideration of all the evidence we have presented to them.”
