Accident compensation news

Sir Ranulph Fiennes guilty of jag crash

Accident compensation is likely to be sought after the British adventurer Sir Ranulph Fiennes was charged with driving without due care and attention after a car crash in March.

The 66-year-old explorer, who at 65 became the oldest person to climb Everest, hit a car head on while driving his Jaguar in Manchester earlier this year.

The night before the car accident, Fiennes had completed a 42-mile (67-kilometre) endurance challenge, the High Peak Marathon

Although Fiennes was not seriously injured in the accident, the driver of the other car suffered collapsed lungs, a broken leg and broken ribs, while a five-year-old child in the car suffered minor injuries.

Fiennes will appear before Stockport Magistrates Court in northern England later this year.

Speaking of the case, a Crown Prosecution Service spokesperson said, "There is sufficient evidence to charge Sir Ranulph Fiennes with driving without due care and attention."

It has not been reported whether an accident compensation claim has been made against the explorer.
