A man has admitted causing death by dangerous driving following a fatal crash in Essex.
Nicholas Weston from Pedlars Path, Danbury, appeared before Chelmsford Crown Court yesterday.
The fence erector also admitted one charge of causing serious injury to a passenger by dangerous driving.
Weston, 22, was behind the wheel of a Ford Escort van when he lost control while driving along Leighams Road, Bicknacre.
The van hit a tree and one passenger, 18-year-old William Andrews from South Woodham Ferrers, was declared dead at the scene.
Another passenger, Joshua Cumberland, who was 18 at the time but is now 19, was seriously injured in the collision.
The crash happened shortly after 9.30pm on September 28 last year.
