A DRIVER has been charged over the smart motorway death of Rotherham man Jason Mercer.
Prezemyslaw Zbigniew Szuba (40) faces two counts causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving in relation to the M1 incident in June 2019.
Alexandru Murgeanu (22), from Mansfield, also died in the three-vehicle collision just north of the Tinsley viaduct.
Broom resident Mr Mercer was described by friends as a “noisy and colourful character”.
His wife Claire has campaigned against smart motorways since her loss.
Szuba, of Kingston upon Hull, will appear before Sheffield Magistrates Court in September.
