Nathan Dale Never Forgotten Poignant Male United shirt message contributes to tributes for awful RNLI volunteer
FLOWERS and football shirts have been left near the scene of the catastrophe where a much-loved bicyclist was associated with a fatal collision.
An arrangement of flowers and 2 Manchester United football t-shirts were left tied to a railing on Outland Road where bicyclist Nathan Dale was involved in a collision with a vehicle in the early hours of March 12.
Mr. Dale, 34, left the neighborhood in mourning after he died from the injuries he suffered as a result of the collision.
The football t-shirts left at the roadside in Peverell one a home t-shirt and one an away shirt have tributes of "RIP buddy" and "Nathan Dale RIP never forgotten" penned throughout the fronts in black ink.
Mr. Dale, a father-of-two, from Whitleigh, had been cycling home from Plymouth lifeboat station where he worked as a volunteer when he was involved in the crash on Outland Road.
He was treated at the scene by paramedics prior to being rushed to Derriford Hospital where he unfortunately passed away as a result of severe head injuries.
Following authority’s questions, 24-year-old Sonny Richards, from Plymouth, was charged with triggering death by negligent driving while under the influence of alcohol and failing to stop after a road traffic collision.
Richards, of Wanstead Road, appeared at Plymouth Magistrates' Court on March 14 where the court heard he was more than two times the legal drink-drive limit, with 85mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath.
He did not get in a plea and was launched on bail up until he next appears at Plymouth Crown Court on April 18 at 10am.
