A young solicitor at City law firm Ashurst has been ordered to stand trial in February accused of killing a motorcyclist by careless driving.

Alexandra Verzariu, 32, who works in the firm’s corporate department, is alleged to have crashed into Rodrigo Pereira De Souza in west London on October 13 last year.

Mr De Souza, 36, broke his neck after he was thrown off his bike and into a lamppost. He died at the scene in Harrow Road, Maida Vale.

Ashurst declined to comment.
