Motorist admits causing the deaths of Dean and Charlie Lowe

Wednesday 15 May 2024


A motorist has admitted causing the deaths of a father-and-son in a road crash last summer.

Dylan John Pounds pleaded guilty to two counts of causing death by careless driving, after Dean Lowe (48) and his 11-year-old son Charlie were hit by a vehicle as they walked along Rue de Fauvic in Grouville on 5 August last year.

However, he denies two counts of causing death by dangerous driving, two charges of causing death by careless driving while under the influence of drink or drugs, and a further charge of holding a telephone whilst driving.

Pounds was remanded in custody following a short hearing in the Royal Court this week, and is due to reappear on 5 September.

He is expected to stand trial in the autumn.
