Boy, 15, charged over teenger's bus death
A 15-year-old boy appeared in court today charged with the manslaughter of a teenager who was run over by a bus.
Ezekiel Amosu, 17, from Walthamstow, east London, suffered fatal crush injuries when he was hit by the westbound number 123 in Walthamstow on Monday night. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police believe he may have been trying to escape from a gang who attempted to rob him moments before the accident.
Officers were called at about 7.15pm following reports of a bus in collision with a male in Forest Road at the junction of Pembar Avenue.
The number 123 runs between Ilford and Wood Green via Walthamstow and Tottenham.
The 15-year-old, also from Walthamstow, was charged last night and appeared at Waltham Forest Magistrates' Court today. He was remanded in custody and will next appear at the same court on February 2.
