A THIRD man has been charged in connection with a crash near Ashley Heath that tragically killed 31-year-old George Greaves.
George, from Hampshire, died after a collision at around 9.25pm on Thursday, June 15, last year near the Ashley Heath Roundabout on the northbound carriageway of the A338.
The crash involved a Nissan Micra and a Lexus GS300. George was the front-seat passenger in the Nissan Micra and sadly died at the scene.
Two other occupants from the vehicle were taken to hospital for treatment to serious injuries.
In September last year Yusuf Muzil, 23, of Cricklewood in London, the driver of the Lexus, was jailed for 12 years after admitting causing death by dangerous driving and two charges of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
Witnesses reported seeing the Lexus and two other vehicles travelling at speeds in excess of 80mph in the moments leading up to the crash.
