Death crash court date

A MAN is due to appear in court charged with causing death by dangerous driving following a collision in which Christopher Alderton, of Great Waldingfield, died in January.

Cary Gordon, 49, of Marine Parade, Worthing, is due to appear at Lewes Crown Court on Friday 14 October, having appeared for a preliminary hearing before Crawley Magistrates’ Court on 4 July.

Mr Alderton, 30, of Green Acre, Great Waldingfield, was injured after his blue Nissan Micra collided with a Renault recovery truck driven by Gordon.

He was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, with serious head injuries, and later transferred to a hospital in Haywards Heath, but subsequently died.
