Road accident in Windhill led to the death of a Frizinghall mum 19 years later, Bradford coroner rules

A WOMAN flung from her mother's arms as a child, when they were hit by a car, died as a result of the tragedy 19 years later, an inquest heard.
Hayley Louise Hunter was two when she and her mum, Sharron, suffered terrible injuries in the accident in Gaisby Lane, Windhill, after stepping out from behind a parked bus.
Glynn Moss, the driver of the car, was at Miss Hunter's inquest yesterday which heard how the child went on to develop learning difficulties and post traumatic epilepsy. She died on April 28 last year after having a fit in bed.
Miss Hunter's mother, who now lives in Brantcliffe Drive, Baildon, hugged Mr Moss during an emotional break in the hearing, telling him it was the epilepsy, not him, to blame for the death. Mr Moss said the accident had ripped him apart.
Mrs Hunter told Bradford Coroner's Court she was so badly injured she had no real recollection of what happened that day, other than she was on her way home and had chocolate in her pocket.
"Apart from that, I just remember getting hit by the car and Hayley flying out of my arms," she said.
The inquest heard how Mr Moss, who now lives in Newcastle, had been charged with aggravated vehicle taking and dangerous driving after the accident in November 1996, but was acquitted by a crown court jury with no case to answer.
He had been returning the car to its owner after repairing it when the accident happened. A message left on his phone by the owner helped clear him of the vehicle taking charge.
