Dagenham man pleads guilty to death by careless driving
A Dagenham man has pleaded guilty to causing the death of a father by careless driving.
Stanley Hornibrook, of Nuneaton Road, was driving a heavy goods vehicle on the A505 near Royston, Cambridgeshire on July 7 last year when he was involved in a four car collision.
A man driving a Smart car, 37-year-old Steven Stamford, of Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire, died as result of the crash.
In August Hornibrook pleaded not guilty to causing death by dangerous driving and a trial had been due to take place in March.
But at Cambridge Crown Court on Monday he pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving.
