Elderly doctor accused of causing pedestrian’s death by careless driving to stand trial

Dr Samin Ahmed Khan

AN elderly doctor is to stand trial next year after denying an allegation that his careless driving caused the death of a pedestrian in north Cumbria.

Dr Samin Ahmed Khan, 74, pleaded not guilty to one charge when he appeared in front of a judge at Carlisle Crown Court over a Skype link.

This charge alleges that Khan’s careless driving of a Mercedes E220 caused the death of 75-year-old Robert Wilson.

This follows a collision which is said to have occurred on the A69 at Warwick-on-Eden, east of Carlisle, on April 27, 2019. Mr Wilson died two days later, on April 29.

Khan, of Scaleby Hill, Carlisle, is now due to stand trial in front of a jury at the crown court. This is due to start on April 19, 2021, with a pre-trial hearing scheduled for earlier in the year.

In the meantime, Khan was granted unconditional bail by Judge Nicholas Barker.
