A 35-YEAR-OLD man has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving after his car hit a 16-year-old schoolboy.

Koaldeep Singh Lit, 35, from the Strood area, has been bailed to appear at Dartford Magistrates Court on September 10.

He is accused of causing the death of Josh Callaghan, who was killed when his car allegedly mounted the pavement in the Overcliffe area of London Road, Gravesend, on January 24 this year.

Mr Callaghan, of Canon Road, Bromley, was a year 11 pupil at Ravens Wood School in Oakley Road, Bromley. He was a musician and dramatist and was walking with his father Tim at the time of the accident.

At the time of his son's death, Mr Callaghan, said: "He was a gifted and popular boy who is going to be greatly missed by many people.

"He loved his music and could play the drums, guitar and his latest love, the bass guitar. He had a large circle of friends and was a loving son and brother, a bright star who had far to go.
