A MAN has today been charged with two offences following a fatal crash on the A14 at Coddenham.

Adalberto Condeo, of Suffolk Road, Ipswich, faces charges of failing to ensure a child under the age of 14 wore a seatbelt and driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

He is due to appear before South East Suffolk Magistrates' Court on June 5.

Condeo was driving a Peugeot carrying Jose Gomes Costa, 30, of Wherstead Road, Ipswich, and his eight-year-old daughter Erica Martins Andrade, who both died in the crash. The pair were thrown from the car on impact.

Mr Costa had just collected his wife and two daughters from Luton airport when the crash happened.

Suffolk police today said no charges had been brought against the drivers of a Transit van and a Vauxhall Vectra which were also involved in the collision.
