A Motorbike rider has suffered substantial facial injuries and several broken ribs after a car smashed in to him at a busy junction.

The driver of the car, a neonatal nurse, was pulling out of a busy junction on the A142 in Cambridge when she drove in to the rider.

The 52-year-old, who is said to be an experienced rider herself denied driving without due care and attention.

However following the four-hour long court hearing she was found guilty of causing the accident.

The court heard that the motorcyclist suffered serious injuries to the face including damaged eye sockets which will require extensive surgery to be corrected.

The rider also suffered broken ribs and internal bleeding and was hospitalised for 10 days following the crash.

“Our argument is that she turned right out of the junction, failed to see the motorcycle, and drove into his path. He was there to be seen and Newell failed to see him,” said the victims solicitor.

The Presiding magistrate found the driver guilty and put five penalty points on her licence.

The driver was fined £400 and ordered to pay a further £500 in court costs and £15 victim surchargates.
