A 21-YEAR-OLD man has appeared in court charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

It follows a road crash in North Wales last November when a 16-year-old Coleg Cambrai Deeside student died.

Jamie Alan Birchal, of Highland Avenue, Queensferry, appeared at Flintshire Magistrates Court at Mold yesterday.

He is charged with causing the death of Sarah Jepson on the A5104 Road at Penymynydd, near Mold, by driving a Peugeot 206 dangerously on November 1, 2013.

It followed the collision between the Peugeot 206 and a heavy goods vehicle carrying cattle.

Prosecutor Helen Hall said the nature of the charge meant it could only be tried in the crown court.

Birchal will appear at a preliminary hearing at Mold Crown Court on July 4.

Magistrates agreed with Brian Cross, defending, that his client should be bailed until the crown court appearance.

l At the time of the tragedy, tributes were paid to former Mold Alun School pupil Sarah of Gwernymynydd, near Mold, who was described as a kind and caring daughter.

In a statement issued at the time, Sarah’s mum Jacqueline said: “Sarah was so full of life, she was an intelligent, insightful teenager.

“She was so kind, caring, loving and an absolute pleasure to be around.

“Sarah was an adventurist who loved sports and was an excellent swimmer.

“She had such a good sense of humour and was  a fantastic artist.”
