Thu, 06 Feb 2020

A motorist defended by counsel at No5 Barristers’ Chambers has been cleared of charges relating to the deaths of two people in a road traffic accident.

PC James Dixon and 91-year-old Gladys Goodwin were fatally injured in Wargrave, Berkshire, in December 2017.

Ian Bridge represented Agne Jasulaitiene, 36, from Crowthorne, who was found not guilty of two counts of causing death by careless driving at Reading Crown Court. It took the jury an hour to return their verdicts.

PC Dixon's motorbike hit the side of Ms Jasulaitiene’s Toyota as she turned right at the junction of Blakes Lane and the A4 Bath Road. The registered carer had been driving Mrs Goodwin home from lunch when the accident happened.
