Cheddar collision – man charged

A 19 year old driver has been charged with dangerous driving in Cheddar. The vehicle he was driving was involved in what Police describe as a “single vehicle collision.”

On the 14 August last year Ryan Peter White was driving through the Gorge on the B3135. Those familiar with the road will know it has numerous rocky outcrops. Several project into the line of the road.

White from Fallowfield in Weston-super-Mare was driving when the car struck the side of the Gorge. Three people were injured.

The 19 year old is due to appear at Taunton Deane Magistrates’ Court at a date to be confirmed.

The stretch of road through the Gorge had to be closed on several occasions last year. Police applied for permission to have the road closed as large numbers of motorists descended on the area.
