A TRUCKER has today been charged with dangerous driving following a crash on the A14 which claimed the lives of a grandmother and her grandson.

Lorry driver Roger Fuller, 50, of Willow Way, Harwich, has been charged in connection with the accident on the Felixstowe-bound A14 near the Trimley interchange sliproad on Monday, August 20 last year.

The accident, which happened around 1.50pm, involved two articulated lorries – one of them Fuller’s Scania – and a Fiat Punto.

The driver of the Punto, Christine Taylor, 59, of Clovelly Road, Wyken, Coventry died at the scene.

Her 15-year-old grandson, William Taylor, a student and keen carp fisherman, of Welsh Road, Coventry, who was a passenger in the car, was taken by air ambulance to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridgeshire with life threatening injuries but later died.

Also in the car was Phillip Wall, 63, the partner of Mrs Taylor, who was critically injured and spent five weeks in a coma in intensive care at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

Retired welder Mr Wall, of Clovelly Road, Wyken, suffered head injuries, and a broken arm, leg and ribs.

Fuller will appear before Ipswich Magistrates’ Court on Wednesay, February 6 to answer the charge of dangerous driving.

  • Two people tragically died, another seriously injured and all he is charged with is dangerous driving? Where is the justice?
