Man to appear in court charged with murder after pedestrian killed

A man will appear in court charged with murder after a pedestrian was killed in a collision with a car.

Jermaine Richards, of Wordsworth Drive in Sheffield, has been charged with murder, attempted murder and criminal damage, South Yorkshire Police said.

The force said that at about 5.50am on Saturday, it was reported that a car was in a collision with a pedestrian on Cricket Inn Road, Park Hill, in Sheffield.

A man named by police as David Ford died as a result of his injuries, while a second man was left seriously injured after being assaulted.

Richards, 31, has been remanded in custody to appear before Sheffield Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

South Yorkshire Police said it has made a mandatory self-referral to the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) relating to the investigation.

The referral to the IOPC is due to police interactions with Richards in the lead up to the incident.
