Airborne accident car kills two women

A Peugeot 406 being driven at speeds up to 130mph became airborne when it crossed a hump-back bridge and in the resulting car accident the partner of the driver and her mother were both killed.

Because the driver suffered severe head injuries after trying out the new family car in the Black Isle, Scotland, it was 17 months before he was fit enough to appear before the High Court in Edinburgh where he admitted causing death by dangerous driving.

The car had crashed into a dry stone dyke before being propelled into a field. A police investigator described the scene as resembling a ‘small air crash' because so much debris was scattered over the field in the resulting road traffic accident.

The driver was due to be sentenced by the court in November 2009. It is not known if the two passengers who survived the car crash will be pursuing a case for personal injury compensation or making a car accident compensation claim.
