A YOUNG man who admitted causing the death of a woman in a car crash has been told he could face jail.

Casey Mola, 20, was charged with causing death by careless driving following a crash on the B1375 at Oulton in Suffolk.

Kelly Palmer, 30, from Bradwell near Great Yarmouth, died after the Suzuki Vitara 4x4 convertible she was driving was in collision with a Citroen car being driven by Mola at Parkhill on November 2 last year.

Mola, of Market Lane, Blundeston, near Lowestoft, appeared at Ipswich Crown Court yesterday.

He pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving, driving a vehicle while uninsured and possession of cannabis. The charges all relate to the incident on November 2 last year.

Stephen Dyble, for Mola, said: “The defendant suffered serious injuries in the incident which had a serious impact upon him.

“Although cannabis was found in the defendant’s vehicle and there was a trace of it in his blood there is no suggestion that he drove while unfit because of the drug.

“We ask that a pre-sentence report and medical reports can be filed on the defendant before we proceed with his case.”

Judge David Goodin told Mola: “This is a very serious offence and you understand that you could lose your liberty.

“We need full reports exploring what options are appropriate and medical reports looking into the accident.

“I’m giving you an interim driving disqualification which means from this moment on you are banned from driving in this country.

“All sentencing options are open in this case.”

Casey was released on unconditional bail to return to Ipswich Crown Court on September 3.
