Two men who appeared in the dock at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Monday charged in connection with an incident in which a man died in a road collision have had their cases sent to Antrim Crown Court.
Krystian Cadler (19), a Polish man who had lived in Kilrea, was killed after a collision at Agivey Road near Kilrea on May 14, 2016.
Lukasz Warchol (34), of Claragh Hill Drive, Kilrea, is charged with causing the death of Mr Cadler by dangerous driving at Agivey Road.
He faces a second charge of dangerous driving on roads including Claragh Hill Road in Kilrea and Lodge Road, Coleraine.
Donal Patrick Mulholland (52), of Glasgort Road near Aghadowey, faces three charges.
The first charge is causing the death of Mr Cadler by driving without due care and attention at Agivey Road; causing Mr Cadler’s death whilst ‘driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence’ at Agivey Road; and causing Mr Cadler’s death whilst using a vehicle without insurance at Agivey Road.
During a Preliminary Enquiry – the legal step to send a case to the Crown Court – a prosecutor submitted that on the basis of the papers before the court there was a case to answer.
Defence lawyers for both men had no contrary submissions.
District Judge Peter King held there were cases to answer and each accused was released on £500 bail to appear at Antrim Crown Court in October for arraignment.
