Premiership football star Lee Hughes was accused in court today of fleeing the scene of a fatal car accident to dodge a breath test because he been drinking before he got behind the wheel.
The allegation was made against the 28-year-old West Bromwich Albion striker on the first day of his trial at Coventry Crown Court, where he denies causing death by dangerous driving in his 100,000 sports car.
Hughes is accused of losing control of the powerful Mercedes coupe near his home in Meriden, Coventry, ploughing into an oncoming Renault, killing father-of-four Douglas Graham and severely injuring his wife, Maureen, and the driver.
