In a terrible accident, Lizzy Keenan, 30, lost her life. She was the passenger in Vauxhall Corsa, which went out of control and hit two walls. The accident occurred at 3:10 p.m. at the junction of Manor Road and Maple Drive. Ms. Keenan lost her life during the accident, whereas the driver, 23-year-old Richard Keenan, survived.
Because of Ms. Keenan's tragic passing, Mr. Keenan is being charged with causing her death by driving dangerously. According to Sky News, he caused criminal damage and was driving under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. He is also being charged for driving while disqualified and uninsured.
It is currently unknown what was happening in the car at the time of the accident, but it is assumed that Mr. Keenan's inebriation played a large part in the crash. Currently, Richard Keenan is in custody and will appear at the Derby Crown Court on September 19.
However, this is not the end of the trauma for those affected by this poor woman's death. Photos were taken of Lizzy Keenan after the accident, and were later posted online by an unnamed 44-year-old man from Derbyshire. They appeared on Facebook less than a full day after the accident occurred, and were shared over 70 times.
