A MAN has been summonsed to court to answer a charge of causing death by careless driving.

Kevin Rolph, 63, of Rachael Gardens in Silver End will appear at Basildon Magistrates’ Court on October 24.

It follows a crash in Paycocke Road, Basildon, on June 25 2018 in which 53-year-old Richard Navin of Basildon sadly died.

The three vehicle crash took place between the junctions for East Mayne and Honywood Road.

Witnesses described seeing fuel and glass and other debris sprayed across the road and at least two recovery vehicles attended to remove the damaged cars from the road.

Police tape closed off the road for several hours while investigations were carried out.
