Victim of fatal collision at Ridgeway is named – as a man is charged

The man who died in a serious collision at Ridgeway has been named, and a man has been charged in connection with the crash.

Jordan Sheehy, who is from the Doncaster area, was travelling in a Vauxhall Mokka on the B6388 High Lane when the collision took place just after 1.40pm on Saturday 1 July.

The 26-year-old died at the scene, and his family are aware and are being supported by Family Liaison Officers.

They have also released a picture of Jordan, which we have published with their permission.

A 30-year-old man has now been charged with causing death by dangerous driving, aggravated vehicle taking, failing to stop after a collision and driving without insurance or the correct licence.

Kyle Buckley, from Eckington, appeared at Southern Derbyshire Magistrates Court today (Wednesday 5 July) and was remanded into prison custody pending a trial at a later date.
