Incident date: 
Fri, 17 Jun 2011
Joao Lopes has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving 9 months after hitting 97-year-old Nora Gutmann on Marylebone Road. Lopes had previously been charged with defective eyesight following the death of Eilidh Cairns in 2009. Ms Gutmann is therefore the second person to lose her life in an incident in which Lopes was involved.
