A teenager has appeared in court charged with causing the death of a motorcyclist while driving a JCB digger.
It comes almost exactly a year after Craig Foster died when his Kawasaki ZX6R motorbike was involved in a collision with a JCB.
Father-of-two Mr Foster, 42, from Accrington, died at the scene following the tragic incident, which happened in Simonstone on Sunday 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.
Mr Foster was riding a Kawasaki ZX6R from Padiham to Clayton-le-Moors when he was involved in the collision on Blackburn Road, Simonstone at around 4.30pm on Sunday, March 23, 2014.
Police said he suffered fatal injuries in the incident and died at the scene.
The road was closed for five hours while police carried out an investigation.
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.
Harry Shaw, 19, was summonsed to court on June 18, last year.
Mr Shaw, of Blackburn Road, Simonstone, has now been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
He appeared at Burnley Magistrates Court earlier this month but did not enter a plea to the charge.
He was released on bail and has been committed to Burnley Crown Court to appear for a plea and case management hearing on Monday, March 30.
