A driver told a court how he has no memory of a head-on collision at Hedenham which injured a couple in an oncoming car.

Alexander Taylor, 27 of Trafalgar Square, Poringland, was involved in a head-on collision on August 15, last year, on the B1332 Norwich Road after he pulled out into the opposite lane when the road was not clear and collided with a Peugeot coming in the opposite direction.

Neil Carr, prosecuting at Norwich magistrates said the couple in the oncoming vehicle were both injured and said that both vehicles were also a total write-off.

Mr Carr said, when interviewed, Taylor said he could offer no explanation about the cause of the crash and knew nothing about the collision.

Magistrates proved the case in his absence and found him guilty of driving without due care and attention and fined him £660 with £100 costs and a victim surcharge of £66.

He was also given nine points on his licence.
