Dublin man sent for trial over fatal e-scooter crash

A man accused of causing the death of a grandmother who died after a collision with an e-scooter in Dublin has been sent forward for trial.

Mary Bernie, who was in her 80s and from Dublin, was seriously injured at around 3pm on 20 June last year and died some days later at the Mater Hospital.

Aaron Gumble, 28, of Drumalee Park, North Circular Road, Dublin 7, was arrested on 4 March and charged with stealing an e-scooter at the Mater Hospital, Eccles Street, and dangerous driving causing the death of Ms Bernie.

He was also charged with a hit-and-run offence for failing to keep the vehicle at the scene afterwards.

Mr Gumble was remanded in custody and faced his latest appearance at Dublin District Court today.
