A MAN accused of causing the death of an 48-year-old woman by dangerous driving has appeared in court.

Mark Bailey, aged 32, came before Worcester magistrates on Tuesday following the collision on the B4085 in Cleeve Prior, near Evesham, at 9.35pm on Monday, January 17.

Menty Smith, who lived at the Cleeve Prior Caravan Park, died and a teenage girl received non-life-threatening injuries.

Bailey, who was allegedly driving a P-reg Vauxhall Midi Merit van while under the influence of alcohol, appeared in court only to confirm his name.

Magistrates heard he was no longer at his given address, Mount Pleasant, Redditch, but could not disclose where he will now live as part of his bail conditions.

Bailey will re-appear before magistrates next Tuesday, February 1 for committal to Worcester Crown Court.

He will face charges of causing death by dangerous driving with an alcohol level above the legal limit, and failure to stop after an accident.

Bailey was released on bail on condition he lives at his stated address and does not drive.

Worcestershire coroner Victor Round permanently adjourned an inquest last Thursday's into the Miss Smith's death whose post mortem report revealed she died of multiple injuries.
