Lincolnshire Police assistant chief constable fined for careless driving
A senior police officer who smashed into an oncoming car while trying to make a hands-free phone call to her MP husband escaped a driving ban today (Thursday).
Kerrin Wilson, the assistant chief constable of Lincs Police, strayed onto the wrong side of the road moments after leaving the force’s headquarters and hit a Hyundai i30 travelling in the opposite direction, a court was told.
It was claimed the 51-year-old became “distracted” as she tried to find the Bluetooth button on the steering wheel of her Mini Countryman, and was “unfamiliar” with the controls because she had only just started driving the vehicle.
