Merseyside Police has charged a 22 year-old man with causing death by dangerous driving following a collision on Manor Drive, Upton, Wirral on Monday 26th April.
Leo Meek, of West Way, Moreton, has also been charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident.
The charges relate to a collision involving 15 year-old Jack Jones.
Jack Jones’ family said earlier today, “Jack was a funny, kind and sensitive boy. He loved being with friends and outdoors, just hanging out, being a typical 15-year-old boy. ”
Flowers and tributes have been left at the scene by those paying their respects.
Jack’s family continued, “He will be hugely missed by everybody, and he was very much loved by all. We all love you very much, Jack, you will always be in our heart and thoughts xx.”
Jack’s family have asked for privacy as they grieve for their loss.
Leo Meek will appear at Wirral magistrates court tomorrow, Thursday 29th April.
