A man is to stand trial later this year after he denied being involved in a hit-and-run in Norwich which left an elderly woman with “life-changing” injuries.

Nevin Pennington, 31, pleaded not guilty to a number of driving offences when he appeared at Norwich Magistrates Court on Friday (January 10).

It follows an incident on Edward Street, Norwich, on April 5 last year where an elderly pedestrian was knocked down.

A trial has been fixed for March 18.
