A lorry driver who caused death by careless driving on a ‘dangerous junction’ in Langley has been sentenced.
Anthony Rourke, 55, drove into the back of a Nissan Qashqai driven by 77-year-old John Connor, whose car was crushed between Rourke’s lorry and a Mercedes-Benz Tractor Unit in front.
Mr Connor suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision which happened between junctions 5 at Langley, and 4B of the M4 on January 16.
Judge Peter Ross said Rourke had misjudged the speed of Mr Connor’s vehicle and sentenced him to 120 hours community service at Reading Crown Court today.
Prosecutor Jane Davies described the junction as a ‘black spot’ where numerous accidents had happened.
