A Watford man is set to appear in crown court charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

Shiam Sugarnan, 21, appeared in Medway Magistrates’ Court on May 31, following the death of Martin Waters in Dover on September 2, 2022.

The case was sent to Canterbury Crown Court for trial on July 1 and Mr Sugarnan was released on unconditional bail following the magistrates’ court appearance.

It is alleged that the Hagden Lane resident caused the death of Mr Waters by driving a Range Rover dangerously on the A2.

According to court documents, Sugarnan indicated a not guilty plea or did not indicate a plea.

After the crash, an inquest heard that the 57-year-old had been returning home from work in the back of a black Seat taxi when it was involved in a crash with a Range Rover.

The cause of death was given as multiple injuries and the coroner stated that he died on impact.
