Haverhill man denies causing serious injury to Newmarket footballers
A Haverhill man has denied seriously injuring two Newmarket footballers by dangerous driving.
Jan Adamec, 40, of Shetland Road, Haverhill, has been charged in connection with a collision which took place in Dullingham Road, Newmarket, on July 1.
Newmarket Town footballers Shaun Whiter and Joey Abbs were changing a flat tyre when they were struck from behind by a Ford Fiesta at about 10.55pm.
As a result of the crash, Mr Whiter, 27, had to have both of his legs amputated below the knee while Mr Abbs, 30, sustained serious crush injuries to his right leg.
At Peterborough Magistrates’ Court yesterday (July 11) Adamec pleaded not guilty to two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
He was remanded in custody until his next court appearance at Cambridge Crown Court on August 8.
