Death at cross­ing am­bu­lance driver quizzed over siren

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN am­bu­lance driver whose ve­hi­cle hit and killed a pedestrian on a marked cross­ing while she re­sponded to an emer­gency call couldn’t re­mem­ber if her siren was on, a court heard.

Faye Par­son, 41 ( above), of Brain­tree, Es­sex, de­nies caus­ing the death of 77-year-old den­tist Michael Daly by care­less driv­ing.

Her am­bu­lance had its blue lights on and was re­spond­ing to an ur­gent call when she pulled into the wrong lane to over­take a queue of traf­fic as she ap­proached a pedestrian cross­ing, Chelms­ford Crown Court heard.

Pros­e­cu­tor Peter Cle­ment said the traf­fic lights were on red as Mr Daly crossed the A414 Main Road in the Dan­bury, Es­sex, on his way home on Fe­bru­ary 4 last year.

The pas­sen­ger-side wing mir­ror of the am­bu­lance hit Mr Daly and he was flung into a black van in queu­ing traf­fic, the court heard.

He suf­fered se­vere brain in­juries and his life sup­port ma­chine was switched off on June 3, 2016.
