Police crash

Lawyer’s client was charged with careless driving having been involved in a collision with a police vehicle. RGM Collision Investigation Services initially offered guidance to the defence team in order that they may seek evidence that had not yet been disclosed. Upon disclosure, it was clear that there was overwhelming evidence undermining the prosecution case, yet the CPS decided to pursue the matter to trial. RGM provided a more detailed investigation and provided an expert report. At trial a submission of ‘no case to answer’ was made to the bench based upon detailed plans and photographs provided by us. The magistrates accepted the submission, the case was dismissed and all costs were awarded in favour of the defendant.  Accident investigation evidence was key in the acquittal.
