JADE CLARK ARREST UPDATE: Man remanded in custody
12:45pm Saturday 23rd March 2013 in Latest
A MAN has appeared in court today charged over the crash that killed 16-year-old Jade Clark on the A31 in east Dorset.
Police investigating her death charged a man last night with causing death by careless driving, failing to stop and driving while disqualified.
Jade was in a collision with a Volvo XC90 on February 24 as she rode her moped along the A31 near Ashley Heath last month.
She died at the scene from a severe head injury.
Brian Hampton, 58, from Kent, was arrested in the Ashford area at around 10am on Thursday.
Hampton was charged on Friday with the three motoring offences.
He appeared before Bournemouth magistrates this morning and has been remanded in custody until his next hearing. He did not enter a plea.
