A 45- year- old man has appeared in court accused of killing a medical student who was knocked down by a driver who failed to stop.
Jaswinder Lakhvinder Singh, of Ward End, Birmingham, was remanded in custody for a week at the city's magistrates' court charged with causing the death of Abigail Craen by dangerous driving.
Miss Craen, a 21-year-old student at Birmingham University, died in hospital after being struck by a car outside her hall of residence in Edgbaston on October 30.
Singh, of Ward End Road, is further charged with having no insurance or MOT certificate at the time of the collision.
He also faces counts of driving other than in accordance with a licence, failing to stop after an accident and failing to report an accident.
Magistrates refused an application for bail and ordered Singh to appear at Birmingham Crown Court on November 16.
Miss Craen's family have released a series of harrowing pictures of her in hospital, including one taken after her death, in the hope that it would help the police inquiry.
The student suffered brain damage and her parents had to make the decision to turn off her life support.
