A TRUCK driver has been sent forward for trial accused of dangerous driving causing the death of a woman in connection with a crash on a motorway.
Martina Loughlin, 47, from Edenderry, Co. Offaly, was seriously injured after two trucks and her car were involved in a collision on the southbound carriageway of the M50 near junction seven at Lucan, Dublin, on November 11, 2015 at about 5.30am.
Ms Loughlin, who had been on her way to work, was in a critical condition when she was rushed to Tallaght Hospital. She was pronounced dead two days later.
Barry Grogan, 36, with an address at Thornville Avenue, Kilbarrack in Dublin, was charged last November with dangerous driving causing the death of Ms Loughlin.
He appeared again before Judge David McHugh at Blanchardstown District Court on Thursday and was served with a book of evidence.
The DPP has directed that Mr Grogan is to be tried on indictment and Judge McHugh told him he was being returned for trial to the Dublin Circuit Criminal Court where he will face his next hearing on February 24.
At an earlier stage, Garda Sergeant Shay Leonard told Judge McHugh that the man “made no reply” when charged.
There was no objection to bail and the sergeant asked for the minimal requirement, for the accused to sign on at his local Garda station once a week.
