Case of 72-year-old man charged with causing death of Ipswich motorcyclist by careless driving is adjourned
A man has appeared at court charged with causing the death of Ipswich motorcyclist Duane Cook by careless driving.
Professor Edwin Candy, 72, of Beach Road East, Felixstowe, attended Ipswich Magistrates’ Court yesterday however the case was adjourned until April 4 to allow a further report to be made from a collision expert on behalf of his defence.
District Judge Claire Jackson said it was ‘rare’ to put back a case at its first appearance at court.
“However, I think it is important and probably correct to adjourn the case for four weeks to speak to the expert,” she said.
She said it was regrettable the family of Mr Cook had attended the court just to see the case moved to a later date.
