Fatal car accident killed university student
A university student was killed in a fatal car accident.
It is believed that the male driving the car suffered a seizure due to alcohol withdrawal.
The 56 year old male was driving a silver Mercedes when he struck the 20 year old female.
She passed away as a result of her injuries.
The driver of the car denied having a seizure while driving and has only had one since the fatal car accident.
The charge of causing death by dangerous driving was dropped due to medical evidence.
The female was struck when she was walking on the pavement. She passed away due to a catastrophic brain injury.
One witness said they saw the driver go through a red light before the fatal accident.
He checked on the driver following the fatal accident while another witness performed CPR on the female.
The first witness said he was foaming at the mouth and was shaking having a fit or seizure.
The driver had attended a sales training course and was on his way home when the fatal accident occurred. He said he cannot remember the fatal accident and can only remember waking up and being escorted into an ambulance.
His licence has been revoked and has not driven since the fatal accident. He has said that he will not drive again. When asked if the seizure might have been caused by alcohol withdrawal he denied the accusations.
