A 19-YEAR-OLD Ipswich motorist has been charged with careless driving following a crash that killed a man and split a car in two.

Kadir Ibrahim, of Cullingham Road, was arrested following the accident, which caused traffic chaos near to the A12 in Essex.

Three Iraqi nationals were inside the red Rover 416 when it careered into a road sign, on a slip-road to the Colchester-bound A12 at Boreham.

Ahmed Aziz Ali died from injuries suffered in the collision, which happened at about 2.15am on August 22.

The 20-year-old, of Grove Lane, Ipswich, and the other two people, including Ibrahim, were thrown across the road by the impact.

Mr Ali, a rear-seat passenger, was taken to Chelmsford's Broomfield Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Ibrahim, along with a 22-year-old man, escaped without serious injury but was treated in hospital for his injuries.

He will now appear before Chelmsford Magistrates' Court in May. He has also been accused of driving without a license, insurance or MOT and obstructing a police constable.

It was a passing ambulance, from Braintree, that spotted the wreckage while en route to another emergency call. Two other ambulances were called to the incident within minutes.

The area was closed for some time while the scene was cleared and police conducted their initial investigations.

Speaking at the time, Essex police said no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Although two men were initially arrested in connection with the accident, a police spokesman said action was only being taken against Ibrahim.

It is thought all three men inside the car had been in Chelmsford's city centre prior to the tragedy.
