Van driver who killed motorcyclist hit schoolboy in fatal crash 15 years earlier

Get the inside track on the big stories from Manchester courts with our weekly newsletter A van driver who hit and killed a motorcyclist after going through a red light had previously crashed into a schoolboy who died while crossing the road.

Kurt Sammon, 54, collided with 13-year-old Michael Weaver in 2004, as the youngster crossed Kingsway in Burnage. Sammon was later jailed for six months, after legal technicalities meant that prosecutors dropped a charge of causing death by dangerous driving.

Then 15 years later, Sammon killed a motorcyclist when he went through a red light and hit 30-year-old Louis McGovern. Prosecutor Rob Hall said Sammon had one of the 'worst driving records I've ever seen'.
