The Herts Advertiser - Death-crash driver is 'unfit to plead'

The Herts Advertiser - Death-crash driver is 'unfit to plead': "THE sister of a cyclist spoke of her anger and heartbreak this week after an elderly driver charged with causing his death was ruled unfit to stand trial.

John Broad, aged 89, of Shenley Hill, Radlett, had been due to make his plea at St Albans Crown Court on the charge of causing death by dangerous driving. However Judge John Plumstead closed the case because the defendant was suffering from Alzheimer's disease."
