Bentley Notting Hill crash - man charged with death by dangerous driving

A man has been charged with death by dangerous driving after the driver of a broken down van was killed when he was struck by a Bentley.

George Claudiu Albu has also been charged with causing death by driving a vehicle not in accordance with licence and while uninsured, and failing to stop at the scene of a collision.

The 31-year-old, of Porchester Road, Paddington is due to appear at West London Magistrates' Court on Monday.

The 23-year-old victim, who worked for grounds maintenance company Quadron and was reported to have been trying to direct traffic around his gardener's truck to prevent an accident, has not yet been named.

The £120,000 Bentley Continental was said to have been abandoned in the street in Notting Hill, west London after the incident on Thursday.
