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.
The prosecution accepted his new plea and sentencing will take place on January 11. Hornibrook was given an interim driving ban and released on bail.
