A motorist has today (Monday) denied causing the death of a Skegness pensioner by dangerous driving following a collision on the A52 at Wrangle.

Jean Holland, 77, of Firbeck Avenue, Skegness, died on Wednesday 4 December last year after a car in which she was a passenger was in collision with a second car on the A52 between Wrangle and Holland Lane End.

David McWilliam, 68, who was driving the other car, entered a not guilty plea to a charge of causing death by dangerous driving when he appeared at Lincoln Crown Court.

McWilliam, who comes from Leicester, will go on trial at Lincoln Crown Court on February 16 next year. The trial is expected to last a week.

Judge Michael Heath adjourned the case for trial and granted McWilliam, of Gallards Hill, Leicester, unconditional bail until his next court appearance.

Police were forced to close the A52 near Wrangle following the collision at around 10.22am on 4 December last year. The crash left one vehicle in a ditch and the other on its roof.

An air ambulance and emergency services attended the scene.
