Crash driver appears in court
A DRIVER has appeared in court in connection with a crash in which a teenage girl was critically injured.
Robert Walker, 26, formerly of The Old Rectory in Bedfield, Suffolk, is charged with driving dangerously, driving without insurance and driving while above the legal alcohol limit.
Walker, who is currently staying with his family in Keswick Road, Bacton, Norfolk, did not enter a plea to any of the charges and was ordered to return to the court on April 26.
The court heard that 18-year-old Emily Millican, from Rickinghall, was a passenger in Walker’s car at the time of the accident on Sunday January 24.
The crash took place in Dog Lane, Bedfield, just north of Framlingham, when Walker’s powerful Subaru Impreza left the road and collided with a tree.
