Driver to face trial over pedestrian death on A17

Have your say

A MOTORIST accused of causing the death of a pedestrian on the A17 is to face a jury trial later this year.

Kyle Simpson (26), of Market Rasen Way, Holbeach, denied causing death by careless driving on June 1, 2011, when he appeared before Lincoln Crown Court on Tuesday.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned the hearing for trial in November and Simpson was granted unconditional bail.

The charge follows the death of pedestrian Jason Smith (38), of Spalding Road, Holbeach, who died following an incident on the A17 at Holbeach.
