A ROAD safety cam­paigner is due to stand trial ac­cused of caus­ing a man se­ri­ous in­jury by dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

Ian Spiller ap­peared be­fore Judge Jeremy Jenk­ins for a plea and trial prepa­ra­tion hear­ing at Cardiff Crown Court last Fri­day.

The 35-year-old from Carn Wen in Broad­lands, Brid­gend, pleaded not guilty to caus­ing se­ri­ous in­jury by dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

He also de­nied dan­ger­ous driv­ing and fail­ing to stop at the scene of a col­li­sion.

The for­mer Lale­ston com­mu­nity coun­cil­lor was in­volved in a crash in Careg Ll­wyd, Broad­lands, on February 11 this year.

His white Audi A5 was in­volved in a col­li­sion with com­plainant Karl Davies.

Mr Davies was taken to the Princess of Wales Hospi­tal in a se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion where he was treated for in­juries in­clud­ing a bro­ken eye socket.

Spiller was granted bail un­til he is due to stand trial on January 29.
