Last updated at 09:57, Friday, 18 January 2013
AN ALLONBY man has been charged with manslaughter following a fatal crash that claimed the life of a Maryport man.
Kyle Twentyman, 21, of Main Street, will appear at Carlisle Magistrates Court on February 1.
He has been charged in connection with a collision in Allonby on March 25 last year.
The collision took place on the village’s B5300 main road at around 7.45pm.
Pedestrian Raymond John Pattinson, 20, of Edinburgh Road, Maryport, died.
Mr Pattinson had spent the afternoon in the village with friends and was on foot when the crash, which involved a Suzuki Swift, happened.
He had earlier worked a lunchtime shift at the Old Posting House in Deanscales where he had been a junior chef for more than two years.
In a statement released at the time, Mr Pattinson’s family said: “Ray was a fabulous son, grandson, brother and uncle. He enjoyed life to the full, was a keen Arsenal supporter and was devoted to his team.
“Ray had many friends and spent most of his spare time in Allonby where he enjoyed playing football and socialising. He was lovable, sensitive and very kind.
“Ray leaves behind his mother Romar, father Raymond, stepfather Trevor and grandparents Yvonne, John and Gerald.
“He also leaves his brothers and sisters Wayne, Marcus, Dale, Hannah, Emma, Katharyn, Jaedon, brothers-in-law Carl and Scott and sister-in-law Amy and Colleen.
“He was also a caring uncle to Braedon, Bailey Jay, Oliver, Warren, Lilly Mae, Maegan, Michaela, Keelie, Chloe and Carly.
“Ray will be sadly missed by all including his aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.”
His funeral was attended by 150 people and Robin Van Persie, the then Arsenal football team captain, wrote to his family to say that the team was saddened to hear of his death.
Mourners heard that Mr Pattinson liked to party and sing karaoke.
He loved the sea, mountains and especially Buttermere and enjoyed barbecues with family and in the company of his nieces, nephews and godchildren.
Mr Pattinson, a former pupil of Silloth Solway Community Technology College, had spent his early years living in Workington before moving to Allonby eight years ago.
He moved to Maryport with his family around a year ago and was in the process of joining the army.
It is understood that Twentyman has been working at shops in the area.
