Driver who killed husband cleared of dangerous driving

A woman who drove her car into her husband in Suffolk, killing him, has been cleared by a jury of causing his death by dangerous driving.

Suzanne Knox, 26, of Hemsby, Great Yarmouth, had admitted causing death by careless driving.

Ipswich Crown Court had heard how Knox drove the family's Renault Scenic into Anthony Knox after a row in Lowestoft.

She said she drove up on to the kerb to speak to him. Sentencing was adjourned for four weeks.

Knox, 26, told police she did not realise she had hit him until she got out of the car.

Mrs Knox had been out looking for her husband with their two young children in the car when she saw her husband sitting on a kerb near a pub on Woods Loke East, the court had heard.

Witnesses described Knox as "hysterical" after the crash.

She called the emergency services and Mr Knox was taken to the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, Norfolk, where he died.
