Man charged and remanded in connection with fatal 2010 collision – Hoddesdon

6 Oct 2021
  • A man has been charged and remanded in connection with a fatal collision in Hoddesdon which happened more than a decade ago.

  • Aleksi Shyti, aged 42, of no fixed address, has been charged with three offences including causing death whilst driving without a licence.

  • 20 year old Ricky Burlton suffered fatal injuries following the collision on the A10 near Hoddesdon in the early hours of Friday 4 June 2010.

A man has been charged and remanded in connection with a fatal collision which occurred in Hoddesdon more than 11 years ago.

Aleksi Shyti, aged 42, of no fixed address, has been charged with:

  • Causing death whilst driving without a licence
  • Possession of a false identity document
  • Providing false information to obtain an insurance policy

He was brought into Hertfordshire Constabulary’s custody on Monday 4 October before appearing at Hatfield Remand Court yesterday (Tuesday 5 October).

He was remanded back into custody and is next scheduled to appear at St Albans Crown Court on Monday 8 November.

The charges are in connection with a collision on a slip road of the A10 near Hoddesdon in the early hours of Friday 4 June 2010.

20 year old Ricky Burlton, from Enfield in London, was struck by a car on his way home from Hertford. Tragically, he suffered fatal injuries and passed away at the scene.

Shyti is believed to have left the country shortly after.

A European Arrest Warrant was issued but it was not until August 2021 that Shyti was detained after attempting to enter Bulgaria and he was extradited to the UK as a result.

Detective Inspector Iain Macpherson, from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Major Crime Unit, said: “Ricky’s family have had to wait 11 long years for someone to be charged in connection with his death.

“I cannot imagine how difficult it has been for them and as ever, they remain in our thoughts as we work through this latest development.

“We now wait for the justice process to progress.”
