Ambulance deaths trial: Accused recalls 'horrific' crash

A motorist accused of causing the deaths of a paramedic and a patient has described to a court the "horrific" moment when the car he was driving collided with an ambulance in Hampshire.

Richard Husband, 26, said he checked his mirror but did not see the vehicle.

Gillian Randall, 42, who was driving the ambulance, and patient Francis Ironside, 88, were killed when the vehicle hit a tree in the New Forest.

Mr Husband, of New Forest Drive, Brockenhurst, denies two counts of causing death by careless driving.
