A Putney driver involved in a fatal collision with a teenage cyclist has been sentenced to 100 hours unpaid work.

Hannah James, 31, of Disraeli Road, Putney, appeared at Woking Magistrates’ Court last Thursday, May 12, to face charges of failing to stop after a road accident and using a vehicle with an unsuitable tyre.

Joel Semmens, 17, was cycling home from Byfleet town centre when he collided with a black Audi TT convertible in Parvis Road, Byfleet.

He was taken to St Peter’s Hospital, in Chertsey, where he later died from his injuries.

James, who admitted all the charges, was ordered to complete the community work in the next 12 months and had her licence endorsed with 10 penalty points.

She was also ordered to pay costs of £87.
