A 31-year-old man who admitted causing the death of Co Tyrone student Enda Dolan by dangerous driving is to be sentenced for the offence next month, a court has heard.

David Lee Stewart, from Grays Park Avenue in Belfast, pleaded guilty to a total of five charges arising from an incident which claimed the life of the 18-year-old.

The architecture student from Killyclougher was in his first year at Queen’s University and was walking along the Malone Road to his student accommodation when he was struck by a white van driven by Stewart on October 15, 2014.

At Belfast Crown Court Stewart admitted causing Enda’s death by dangerous driving, as well as four other motoring offences including dangerous driving and failing to provide a specimen of blood.

A Crown prosecutor revealed that a co-accused – William Casement, 21, from Belvoir Drive in Belfast – will be arraigned on charges arising from the incident at the same court today.
