A teenager has admitted causing the death of a motorcyclist while driving a JCB digger.
Harry Shaw, 19, has pleaded guilty to causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving, more than a year on from the death of Accrington father-of-two Craig Foster.
Mr Foster, 42, from Accrington, died when his Kawasaki ZX6R motorbike was involved in a collision with a JCB in Simonstone on March 23 last year.
The well-known former market butcher, who was said to enjoy ski-ing and jet surfing, was travelling home from work to see his family when the crash occurred.
Lancashire Police said he suffered fatal injuries in the incident and died at the scene.
A keen and experienced motorcyclist, Mr Foster spent some time working on his father’s butchers stall in Accrington before turning his hand to the restoration of Volkswagen Beetle cars and camper vans.
Tributes to Mr Foster from family and friens poured out after the incident, with many describing him as a ‘popular’ man who lived an interesting and fun filled life.
Shaw of Norwood View, Simonstone will be sentenced at Burnley Crown Court on July 31.
