A jury has gone out in the trial of a driver, who is alleged to have drifted onto the wrong side of the road after a “momentary lapse” and killed a 78-year-old man in a collision.

Melanie Last, 50, is accused of causing the death by careless driving of William Plewman in a three-car crash on the A146 near Thurton.

Norwich Crown Court heard that Last, of Burlingham Drive, Carlton Colville, was driving a black BMW towards Norwich before the collision, which left her and two other drivers with serious injuries.

Mazda pick-up driver, Mr Plewman received serious internal injuries from which he later died, after the crash caused his truck to spin round in the road, flip over and end up in a ditch.

Last has denied causing the death by careless driving of Mr Plewman on June 29, 2015.
