Child not wearing seat belt left brain damaged in crash

A man and woman are facing jail after a child, who was not wearing a seat belt, suffered devastating head injuries in a Lake District car crash.

Carlisle Crown Court heard the Preston couple were returning to Lancashire by car after a first date trip, and while one child was restrained in a car seat, a traffic camera captured a young girl on the male front seat passenger's lap, unrestrained.

Soon afterwards, in blizzard conditions on the A591 near Windermere, the woman lost control of the car, which left the road before hitting a tree and wall.

The girl suffered life-threatening injuries and was left with brain damage.

The man and woman denied child cruelty, but were found guilty after a trial, and they will go to Preston Crown Court on 28 October for sentence.

This is a serious matter for which immediate custody for both of you may be imposed."

Judge David Potter
  • The man and woman cannot be named to protect the child's identity.
