A man has pleaded not guilty to causing the death of two women from dangerous driving in a collision on the M25.

Krzystof Zarebski, 34, of Gordon Street, Coventry, appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court today, June 17, and entered his pleas in relation to the incident and one count of causing serious injury.

Mother and daughter 68-year-old Ayse and 49-year-old Sevim Ustun, both from Northdrift Way, Luton, were sadly pronounced dead at around 11.30pm on Tuesday, March 19, 2018.

The incident occurred between junctions 26 and 27 of the motorway near Waltham Abbey when Zarebski’s articulated lorry collided into the family who were pedestrians.

A 10-year-old girl was also taken to hospital with serious injuries after the lorry overturned and crashed down onto an embankment.

Zarebski will next appear at Chelmsford Crown Court for his trial, which is listed for Monday, February 24, 2020.

  • Essex Police would like to note to when they announced Zarebski’s charges (issued on Sunday, April 12, 2019) his surname was spelt incorrectly. Essex Police apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask that the surname is corrected to Zarebski.

In previous press releases, Essex Police also referred to the collision being between an Audi and an articulated lorry.

We would like to clarify that all victims were pedestrians at the time of the collision and Essex Police asked for this to be reflected in its reporting.
