Teen could face court over Ulverston dad’s road death
Last updated at 15:04, Friday, 06 April 2012
CHARGES are set to be considered against a teenage driver after an Ulverston dad was killed in a road accident.
George Tyson, 61, died on the A5087, known as the coast road, while out walking with his disabled son Garry on January 22.
Mr Tyson, who was a well-known figure in the town, is said to have pushed his son out of the path of an oncoming car but taken the impact of the vehicle himself.
A 17-year-old was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving after the accident.
A police spokesman said the investigation into the accident was still under way.
Once it had been completed, the case would be passed to the Crown Prosecution Service, which would decide whether to lay charges.
Mr Tyson’s wife Carol Tyson said the family had placed more flowers at the scene after the original floral tribute was believed to have been stolen.
A trough of flowers left by the side of the road where the accident happened disappeared in February.
Mrs Tyson said the family had put some new bouquets of flowers at the spot near Conishead Priory. She said: “It has not discouraged us at all. It has made us more determined.
“They have not been touched, they are fine.
“I think everybody is on the look out now, everybody seems to be keeping an eye out for them.”
Mrs Tyson said her daughter Melanie had moved back to Ulverston from Leeds to help the family through the aftermath of Mr Tyson’s death.
