It has been revealed that a fatal car crash in Bridlington was caused by the sister of the victim who died.
A 20 year old woman, Rosie-Ann Stone and her sister, Jennie Stone were travelling back from Skipsea in separate cars. Rosie-Ann, who was in a Vauxhall Astra, smashed into the back of her sister’s car along the A165. Jennie’s, car, a Peugeot 206 then hit tree.
Jennie suffered severe head injuries following the smash and died of those injuries. Rosie-Ann was unaware that the victim of the crash was her sister and did not know she was on the same part of the road.
Rosie-Ann has since pleaded not guilty in respect of a causing death by careless driving charge . She stands accused of not checking her mirrors before making a manoeuvre. The prosecution at the trial at Bridlington Magistrate’s Court, said: ‘This particular case is doubly tragic because there were two cars involved and the driver of the other car was the older sister of Rosie.
Last year, the Stone family lost another member of their family, Private Gregg Stone, who was shot dead while serving in Afghanistan.
Rosie’s and Gregg’s parents, Angie and Bob have shown their support to their daughter during her trial. As they were watching from the gallery they gave her the ‘thumbs up’. Her mother, Angie said that the situation is like being ‘trapped in a bad dream’ and her family had already been through enough.
