Two sent forward for trial over fatal crash

Two people charged in connection with a road traffic accident which killed a young Limerick woman have been sent forward for trial at the Circuit Court.

Roman Andreas(21) of Dromroe, Rhebogue and Gearoid Cleary(26) are charged with dangerous driving causing death of 19 year old Emma Woodland last year.

The young student from St. Patrick’s Road was killed just around the corner from her home in a three car pile up on the Ballysimon Road on September 8th.She was the backseat passenger in one of the vehicles.

At an earlier court hearing the judge was told how Mr. Andreas left the scene of the crash but was apprehended by Gardai shortly after. He was arrested and charged in Limerick District court with dangerous driving and with failing to stop, remain and report to Gardai at the scene of the crash.

The case against both men was today returned to trial at the next sitting of the Circuit Court in Limerick, which begins next week.
