A man has appeared in court charged with causing the death of cyclist Alan Cronin by dangerous driving.
Polish national Damian Niepieklo, 22, is also accused of failing to stop and failing to report an accident on the A483 Rossett, near Wrexham.
Cyclist Alan Cronin , 60, of Guilden Sutton, near Chester, died following the collision at junction 7 of the northbound carriageway near the Rossett flyover.
The defendant, who followed the five minute hearing with the aid of an interpreter, did not indicate pleas at today’s hearing.
Judge Rhys Rowlands remanded him in custody and adjourned the case for a plea hearing on August 7.
A provisional trial date was fixed for November 10.
Prosecuting barrister John Philpotts said the allegation of causing death by dangerous driving arose from a fatality on June 11.
Duncan Bould, defending, said that there were on-going inquiries and he was not in a position to indicate pleas at this stage.
The defendant was remanded in custody in the meantime.
In an earlier tribute statement, Mr Cronin’s family said: “Alan was the best possible dad, husband, brother and partner to have, willing to do anything for anyone.
“He was always someone to turn to and had a solution to any problem.
“He was an active member of Chester Triathlon Club and loved being with the club, with friends and family.
“He was the most fantastic man and he’ll stay with us for the rest of our lives.
“We thank everyone who’s been so supportive so far and we ask for privacy at this time while we try to come to terms with everything that’s happened.”
An inquest into the death of Mr Cronin has been opened and adjourned to a later date.
Chief Inspector Darren Wareing from North Wales Police is still looking for witnesses to the crash to come forward.
He said: “We are still appealing to anyone who witnessed the collision, or who may have seen the cyclist or a white Fiat van in the vicinity at the time of the collision to contact North Wales Police on 101 quoting incident reference S084345.”defendant
