Five Cleared Of Careless Driving Charges

Posted: January 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

Five motorcylists who were controversially charged of causing death during a collision with a couple in a car have been cleared.

The group had been charged with causing death by careless driving of Bradford couple Dean and Helen Slater, who collided with a car while riding.

The charges of Paul Wheater, 29, Ian Townson, 31, Michael Paul Hannon, 26, David Hastings, 27, and Dax Lerman, 28, were cleared by a judge after the prosecution failed to produce sufficient evidence.

The five defendants, all from West Yorkshire, were arrested after simultaneous dawn raids on their homes in November.

But the charges were dismissed at Leeds Crown Court.
