A man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving – after a former Farnborough Town player died in a crash in London.
17 year old Harry Louis Rice was among a group of three teenagers killed when they were hit by a car that reportedly mounted the pavement close to a nearby petrol station.
Despite the efforts of paramedics, all three boys were pronounced dead at the scene.
It is understood they had been on their way to a birthday party at a nearby football club with friends when they were killed.
The other two victims were 16-year-old George Toby Wilkinson and 16-year-old Josh Mcgunniess.
Jaynesh Chudasama, 28, of Hayes, is due to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court today.
He was arrested at the scene of the crash.
A 34-year-old man was arrested earlier on Sunday after he voluntarily attended a police station in north London.
Earlier yesterday Detective Sergeant Michael Rapp of the Met’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This is a fast moving investigation and CCTV enquiries and forensic analysis of the car involved are under way.
“At least two males are believed to have left the black Audi A5 following the collision. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances of the collision and the number of occupants in the vehicle involved.”
Hillingdon Borough Commander, Colin Wingrove said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with family and many friends of three young men who have died in such tragic circumstances.
“Tributes continue to be laid at the scene and officers will be in and around the area providing a presence and also make to themselves available to anyone who does have information and wants to speak with police.
“Detectives from the Roads and Transport Policing Command continue to lead the investigation and a number of enquiries are on going.
“There is understandably a lot of shock and grief in the local community. These three young men had their whole lives ahead of them.
“I would like to reiterate the appeal from the families that their privacy is respected at this difficult time so they can grieve in peace.”
