Fatal Stoke Hammond Crash - Man Convicted
A 34 year-old man has been convicted of causing death by dangerous driving on the A4146 Stoke Hammond Bypass.
Christopher Mallett, of Clyde Place, Bletchley, was found guilty of one count of causing death by dangerous driving by a unanimous jury after he was driving a HGV tractor and crashed it into a broken down car on the 20th of March 2015.
Seven year-old Mohammed Ali Ahmed who was in the car, died at the scene.
Mallett was arrested on the day of the collision and charged on 10 September last year.
He is due to be sentenced at Aylesbury Crown Court on 7 March.
Investigating officer, PC Sandra Terry of the Thames Valley Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said:
"I am pleased that the jury in this case found Mallett guilty of one count of causing death by dangerous driving. Mallett had previously pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of causing death by careless driving but this was not accepted by the Crown and therefore a trial ensued.
I hope Mallett’s conviction will bring some sense of justice to Mohammed Ali Ahmed’s family. Our thoughts are with his family at this extremely distressing time."
