A crown court trial date has been set for a man accused of causing the death of a pensioner.

Josh Benjamin, 22 of Southern Drive, Loughton, is charged with causing death by dangerous driving after his white Ford Transit collided with Emelie Buckner in Oakwood Hill, Loughton, at around 7.30am on October 10.

The 78-year-old was walking her dog at the time she was hit and died at the scene.

Josh Benjamin was released on unconditional bail until July 28 when he is due to attend Chelmsford Crown for a plea and case management hearing.

No plea was entered when he appeared at Chelmsford Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
