Man further charged after crash

Roman Andreas, the Latvian man who was charged last Wednesday with dangerous driving after he was involved in a traffic accident that left 19 year old Limerick girl dead, has been further charged today.

As expected the 21 year old has had the charge of dangerous driving causing the death put to him also at a hearing today.

The young girl Emma Woodland from St. Patrick’s Road was killed just around the corner from her home in a 3 car pile up on the Ballysimon Road on September 8th

Speaking of the families grief last week her brother told the Limerick Post,

"At least she was with her friends and having a good time before she died. But it just seems so unfair, She was innocent. She was the only one wearing a seat belt and she was sitting in the back seat so you’d think she would have been safe"

Mr. Andreas will appear again next Tuesday.
