Driver awareness course for Bradley Wiggins crash driver
9:48am Friday 15th February 2013 in News
A VAN driver who knocked Tour de France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins off his bike in Lancashire has accepted the offer of a driver awareness course.
The 32-year-old athlete spent a night in hospital following the accident near his home in Eccleston last November, while he was on a training run.
The four-time Olympic champion was treated for a bruised hand and ribs. After a formal interview, the van driver, Cath Burrows, 44, was summonsed by Lancashire Police over driving without due care and attention.
It has emerged she has agreed to complete a driver awareness course.
A police spokeswoman said it considered the matter had been dealt with.
