Woman denies dangerous driving following injury to police motorcyclist

A WOMAN from Alcester accused of injuring a police motorcyclist whose legs and pelvis were broken in a crash is expected to stand trial in September.

Lisa Perkins, 47, of Meadow Road, has pleaded not guilty at Warwick Crown Court to causing serious injury to Pc Ian Jamieson by dangerous driving.

The charge follows a collision on the B439 Evesham Road near Luddington between Perkins, driving a Citroen C2, and police motorcyclist Pc Jamieson at 3.15pm on November 2 last year.

Pc Jamieson, riding a Kawasaki ZG1400, was taking part in a police advanced motorcycle training course at the time.

He suffered multiple fractures to both legs and to his pelvis, and was flown by air ambulance to University Hospital in Coventry where he underwent surgery the following day.

Prosecutor Glyn Samuel said while not a deliberate act to drive across the path of the motorcycle, Ms Perkins should have known the police vehicle was there.

Judge Andrew Lockhart QC adjourned the case for trial, which is expected to last three days.

The trial was not given a fixed date, but is to be put into a ‘warned list’ for a period in September, and Perkins was granted bail.
