A 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has appeared before Dudley magistrates this morning charged with death by dangerous driving, driving without a license, no insurance and failing to stop at the scene. He has been released into the care of Social Services to re-appear at Dudley Youth Court on Wednesday 8 August.

Two female passengers aged 14 were also injured in the collision - one suffered a broken arm and the other minor injuries.
