Indian-origin Man Charged with Causing 3 Deaths by Dangerous Driving in London
Jaynesh Chudasama has been remanded in custody for the death of three teenage boys in the car crash.
A UK court remanded an Indian-origin man in custody on charges of death on three counts due to dangerous driving, causing a car crash that ended up killing three teenage boys last week in London.
Jaynesh Chudasama, 28, of Hayes in West London was accused of causing death by driving dangerously by the Uxbridge magistrates’ court on Jan. 29. He is scheduled to appear at the Old Bailey on Feb. 26, the Times of India reported.
The teenagers who were the victims of the crash were 17-year-old Harry Louis Rice and 16-year-olds George Toby Wilkinson and Josh McGuinness. Paramedics rushed to the scene but they could not revive the boys. The teenagers were declared dead at the scene of the crash, the Independent reported.
Chudasama was allegedly driving a black Audi A5 when the car mounted the pavement and caused a fatal collision, killing the teenagers. The boys were with a group of friends and were headed towards the Goals five-a-side football club on Jan.26 when the fatal collision occurred. The other friends who survived the crash reportedly ran behind the people inside the car to catch hold of them when the police arrived. They could detain one of them, while the other fled from the scene.
One of the friends of the boys who survived the crash said that the incident is like a blur. “Five of us were walking to the party and the next moment three of my friends were dead on the ground. The car lost control,” he added.
According to the police, the car that allegedly caused the accident was being driven at a very high speed. After the crash, the car could be seen completely smashed and mangled in the pictures.
“Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command continue to lead the investigation and a number of enquiries are ongoing,” said Superintendent Colin Wingrove, the local borough commander, PTI reported.
One of the witnesses at the scene — an Indian-origin man Amandeep Matharoo — dialed the emergency services. He witnessed some boys beating up a man who tried to abandon the car that reportedly caused the crash and flee. “The lads were shouting on the phone and saying three of our friends are dead, they were hysterical and in pieces,” said Matharoo, the PTI report added.
