A COVENTRY man has denied causing the death of a teenage cyclist by dangerous driving and is set to stand trial.
Ryan Willoughby-Oakes, 17, was cycling in Binley Road at the junction with Hipswell Highway at around 7.15pm on Friday October 5 last year when he was hit by a car.
The trainee electrician, from nearby Newey Road, suffered a fatal head injury and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Tajinder Singh Rai, of Chelney Walk, was last month charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
But at Birmingham Crown Court today (May 30) he pleaded not guilty.
A four-day trial will begin at the crown court on November 11 and Mr Rai was granted bail.
