Carlisle woman denies dangerous driving allegation

Carlisle Crown Court

[A] WOMAN accused of badly injuring a cyclist by dangerous driving in Carlisle is to go in trial later this year.

Eileen White, 57, appeared at the city’s crown court today (FRI).

White pleaded not guilty to a charge which alleges that she caused serious injury to Michael Fisher by dangerous driving in a Ford vehicle on May 31 last year.

It arises out of an incident in which a vehicle and a pedal cyclist were in collision at the double roundabout at the junctions of St James’ Road, Norfolk Street and Norfolk Road.

It was reported at the time that the cyclist had been taken to Carlisle’s Cumberland Infirmary after the collision.

White, of Milbourne Street, Carlisle, is due to go on trial at the crown court in the week of June 4. It is estimated the hearing will last two to three days.

In the meantime White was granted bail by Judge James Adkin.
