Bedlington fatal crash: Accused Jordan O'Donnell remanded in custody after court appearance


A man accused of causing the death of a teenager by dangerous driving has been remanded in custody.

Jordan O’Donnell appeared in the dock at South East Northumberland Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

The 20-year-old is alleged to have been driving a silver Ford Mondeo car when it crashed into other vehicles on Victoria Terrace, in Bedlington, killing 19-year-old passenger Bethany Fisher.

O’Donnell, of Waverley Court, Bedlington, made his first appearance in court after being charged with causing death by dangerous driving, causing serious injury by dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report an accident.

Wearing a grey tracksuit, he spoke only to confirm his name, date of birth and address during the hearing on Monday.

Because of the seriousness of the death by dangerous driving offence, no pleas were taken to any of the four charges.
