Man remanded in custody after being charged with murder of man killed by own car

Errol Woodger, 37, has also been charged with robbing Marc Allen of the same vehicle.

A man has been remanded in custody after being charged with murder over the death of a 51-year-old man fatally run down by his own car.

Errol Woodger, 37, of Mottisfont Road, Abbey Wood, south east London, has also been charged with robbing Marc Allen of the same vehicle.

Mr Allen suffered fatal head injuries when he tried to challenge a suspected thief who attempted to steal his car from his driveway on Peareswood Road, Erith, south east London in December 2019.

He was taken to King’s College Hospital in south London where he was placed into a coma.

He died a month later on January 29 2020.

Appearing at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, Woodger spoke only to confirm his identity.

District judge Sarah Turnock remanded Woodger into custody and adjourned the case to the Old Bailey for Monday.

Woodger was also charged with three other offences relating to the driving of an e-scooter while disqualified and without insurance in Plumstead, south east London on June 18.

The judge set a next hearing for the remaining offences at Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
