The boy was accused under Section 1 of the Road Traffic Act with causing death by dangerous driving, aggravated taking and driving away, failing to stop after an accident, driving without insurance and driving without a licence.

He was bailed to appear at Camberwell Youth Court on Wednesday 24 March.
