Ferrari Road Death Man Charged
Driver's car pinned woman to railings of cemetery
A Ferrari driver from Watford is to appear in court charged with dangerous driving in relation to the death of a woman in North Acton this January.
William Lings, 26, of Rickmansworth Road, is charged with causing the death by dangerous driving of Jennifer England.
The 52-year-old woman from East Acton, died when she was pinned against the railings of a cemetery by a Ferrari in Chase Road.
Mr Lings will appear at Isleworth Crown Court in October.
The incident came only a few weeks after Rose Cleary, a pensioner, was killed on North Acton Road. Mrs Cleary died just yards away from the spot where 5-year-old Rachel Popoola had been knocked down by a hit and run driver only 3 weeks beforehand.
Another woman, Maria Kishak, was killed by a hit and run driver on the same crossing as Rachel just over 3 years ago.
Residents say traffic along Chase Road and North Acton Road is extremely heavy as the roads are used by drivers accessing warehouses and businesses on The Park Royal Industrial Estate - one of the biggest in Europe. The two roads are also being used as a rat run by drivers cutting through between the A40 and A406.
