A 21-YEAR-OLD man charged with causing the death of a teenage student by dangerous driving has pleaded not guilty.

Jamie Alan Birchal, of Highland Avenue, Queensferry, appeared at a plea hearing at Mold Crown Court.

He admitted causing the death of Sarah Jepson on the A5104 at Penymynydd, near Mold, by driving a Peugeot 206 carelessly on November 1, 2013.

The fatality followed a collision between the car and a heavy goods vehicle carrying cattle.

But he denied a charge of causing death by dangerous driving and that issue was adjourned for trial by Judge Niclas Parry.

The trial will be held in November at Caernarfon Crown Court.

Birchal was bailed pending the trial and the judge imposed an interim driving ban.

The defence was given six weeks to serve an expert’s report if it is to be relied upon.

l At the time of the tragedy, tributes were paid to the Coleg Cambria A-level student.

Sarah, 16, of Gwernymynydd, near Mold, was described as a “kind and caring daughter” by her mother Jacqueline. Sarah was a former pupil at Alun School in Mold.
