It was a tragic accident but if she was driving on the wrong side of the road then she was driving without due care and attention which is a criminal offence , she could be charged with causing death by driving without due care and attention.
Accidents happen but there is fault in every accident , causing death by accident still has repercussions.
WE DON'T KNOW!!!
The force has said CCTV of the crash in which Mr Dunn died shows a Volvo travelling on the wrong side of the road
We know she was driving on the wrong side of the road which is classed as either driving without due care and attention or dangerous driving.
Forgetting which side of the road to drive on is not considered "careless" under the law
Dangerous driving is a very serious offence and the term can cover many different situations.
Common examples of dangerous driving will include driving too fast on a busy road, driving on the wrong side of the road, driving with Faulty Brakes and driving with unsecured loads.
If the police are charging that the driver’s vehicle is in a dangerous condition then they must prove that the driver was aware of this.
This can also be proven if the dangerous condition of the vehicle would have been apparent to a competent driver
