A DRIVER admitted a charge of causing the death of a Neston man by careless driving.
It follows the death of motorcyclist Russell James Green, of Leighton Road, 45, on the A550 in Tinkersdale, Hawarden, on September 26 last year.
On Friday at Mold Crown Court, Philip Delduca, 41, of Bilberry Close, Penyffordd, near Mold, admitted causing the death of Mr Green by driving a Vauxhall Zafira without due care and attention.
He had elected to be tried in the Crown Court at an earlier hearing before Flintshire magistrates.
Judge Niclas Parry bailed him pending sentence.
“You had the good sense to plead guilty in this extremely sad case,” the judge told him.
“By your plea, you will at least have saved some additional distress to the family of the deceased.
“But it is only right that before you are sentenced that the court should know as much as it can about you.”
He ordered a pre-sentence report from the probation service and he will be sentenced next month.
Motorcyclist Mr Green died after his orange Triumph Triple 675cc motorcycle collided with Delduca’s grey Vauxhall Zafira and another car at about 2.10pm on September 26.
Mr Green suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
He left wife Jane and children Jayne, Sophie, Charlotte and Thomas, stepdaughter Daisy, mother Joan, brother Richard and sister Christine.
In a statement at the time, the family, from Leighton Road, Neston, said he had died doing what he loved and was ‘adored by all his family and friends’.
