    Computer proves man was ‘doing 100mph’ before fatal car crash

    By David Brown on October 1, 2010

    A driver who is accused of killing a father-of-three in a car crash has admitted he is ‘ashamed’ of himself after computer evidence has proven he was travelling at 100 mph in the seconds before the impact.

    Richard Williams, 22, was driving a 2.0 litre RenaultSport Clio along the A48 on April 10th, 2009 when he struck another Clio driven by Collin James, 66, who was crossing the carriageway in front of him. Mr James died at the scene from multiple injuries.

    A Bosch data recorder from Williams’ car was sent back to the manufacturers for analysis. The results conclude that the car was travelling at 100 mph and only applied its brakes 0.6 seconds before the crash.

    The prosecution alleges that in the immediate aftermath of the accident, Williams was said to have aggressively told co-accused Rhydian Griffiths that Mr James had ‘pulled out in front of him.’

    Neither the prosecution or defence dispute the computer evidence, but both Williams and Griffiths deny they were racing each other.
