lost daughter 2004 in an incident after overtake with a lorry and another car hit her from behind).
So how did that happen? Did she pull out into the path off another car that she either, (a) did not see, on a relatively straight road (I'm assuming it was a motorway as this is the issue on the agenda) or (b) misjudged the speed of?
or were there other circumstances that put the blame on speed and not her driving?
From what I can glean from various articles:
The daughter (Amy Voysey) was initially involved in a minor collision. She decided to wait in the car until she was recovered; the hazard indicators were on.
A lorry driver, at a reported speed of 80mph, collided with the stationary vehicle.
It is reported that the speed limit for that class vehicle (on the A47, at north Tuddenham) was 60mph.
For whatever reason, the lorry driver (Glenn Paraman) was given 7 points and £300 fine. The sentence was passed before the DBDD law.
Liz said: “I was told that if he had been under the 70mph limit he would have seen her.
Either it happened on a blind bend, or someone is spouting misleading propaganda.
