Fatal motorcycle crash man found guilty


A Wiltshire biker involved in a fatal motorcycle crash has been found guilty over the death of a pedestrian, despite failing to give a breath sample at the time of the accident.

The accident occurred in May 2007, when the man's bike crashed into a Mercedes van before striking the pensioner, causing such severe personal injury to the pedestrian that he died at the scene before the emergency services could arrive.

The motorcyclist refused to give a breath sample to police, but the court accepted that his blood and urine samples from the hospital could be considered admissible evidence in the trial, and the evidence that these presented was compelling.

The jury therefore convicted him of causing death by careless driving in the motorcycle crash. The man will return to Swindon Crown Court for sentencing later this month.
