A man is due to appear in court in Sheffield today in connection with the death of a city teenager.

Jasmyn Chan, aged 14, from Frecheville, was killed while crossing Normanton Hill in Intake on May 9.

Naseeb Ellahi, of St Ronan’s Road, Nether Edge, Sheffield, will appear before city magistrates today.

Ellahi, aged 32, has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident.

He is also charged with causing death by driving while uninsured, causing death by driving while unlicensed, causing serious injury by dangerous driving and failing to report an accident.

More than 1,000 mourners attended Jasmyn’s funeral earlier this year.
