Luton firefighter faces crash death trial

  • 5-4-2011

A Bedfordshire firefighter on a 999 call went through a red traffic light and crashed into a car causing the death of the driver, a jury has heard.

Robert Hulatt, 28, of Browning Close, Bromham, denies causing the death of 52-year-old Abdul Lateef Kadri Sheikh by dangerous driving.

He also denies an alternative charge of causing his death by careless driving, Luton Crown Court was told.

Mr Sheikh from Marlow Avenue, Luton, died 25 days after the crash in 2009.

Wayne Cleaver, prosecuting, told the jury the collision occurred shortly after 0830 GMT on 11 September 2009 at the junction of Chapel Street and Windsor Street in Luton.

Mr Cleaver said there were certain circumstances in which people in the emergency services could ignore the red light.
