A MAN has been charged over the death of 11-year-old Isabelle Boshell who was hit by a car on Tamworth Road, Keresley, in October last year.

Ola Onubogu, of Wappenbury Road, Wood End, is accused of causing death by careless driving.

The 53-year-old has been bailed to appear before Coventry Magistrates Court on March 31.

Schoolgirl Isabelle was struck by a Toyota Verso on October 22 but sadly died from her injuries four days later in hospital.

At the time the family released an emotional tribute, describing her as a ‘loving daughter, granddaughter, great granddaughter and sister’.

It added: “She was loved by her friends, family and adored by her dog and cat whom she loved.

“She meant a lot to everyone and lived life to the full; she loved art, dancing, singing and learning.

“She was learning to play the guitar and was a unique individual who loved to set her own trends.

“The best daughter anyone could ever have.”
