    Police officer cleared over Doncaster death crash

    BBC News - Police officer cleared over Doncaster death crash

    A police officer who hit a pedestrian in his patrol car has been cleared of causing death by dangerous driving.
    Ian Hambrey died after he was hit by Pc David Allen's car on Doncaster Road, Denaby Main, near Doncaster, last year.
    Leeds Crown Court heard the 35-year-old officer was driving at speeds of up to 75mph in a 30mph zone moments before he struck Mr Hambrey, 49.
    Mr Allen, who was responding to a 999 call at the time of the crash, was cleared after a three-day trial.
    He was also cleared of an alternative charge of causing death by careless and inconsiderate driving.

    Sounds like all requirements for urgent duty driving were being met by the PC, a fair result.

    If anyone knows..the BBC link states Hambrey was on his way home from a night out. Any alcohol involved? i.e drunk steps onto road failing to look for traffic, or was it just one of those things that never happen?

    I was supprised that there was no mention of drink on the part of the pedestrian, it normally says one way or the other it is used by either the prosecution or the defence as part of their case.
