A man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving after a woman died following a collision between a pedicab and a car in London.
Luis Fernanado Balcazr-Soto, 24, of Law Street, Southwark, southeast London, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
A woman in her 30s, who was a passenger in the pedicab, was killed in the incident, while the driver, also aged in his 30s, was taken to hospital with a suspected broken arm.
The collision took place on New Kent Road in Southwark early on Sunday.
The rickshaw had stopped in a bus lane outside a branch of Tesco Express so that one of the passengers, a woman in her 20s who escaped unhurt, could use a cash machine, according to the Evening Standard.
Balcazr-Soto is accused of causing death by dangerous driving; causing serious injury by dangerous driving; causing death by driving a vehicle whilst unlicensed; causing death by driving a vehicle whilst uninsured; and breach of a restraining order.
He was remanded in custody to appear at the Old Bailey on 8 August.
