David Christie was struck head-on when Jessica Hedley overtook a lorry having failed to observe him despite his light and high-visibility clothing. He suffered severe injuries which later proved fatal.

Hedley initially pleaded not guilty to causing death by careless driving but on the second day of her trial changed her plea to guilty. She was banned from driving prior to sentencing in September 2016, when she was awarded 200 hours’ unpaid work and a two year driving ban.
