A MAN will stand trial today accused of causing the deaths of a paramedic and an elderly man in a horrifying crash in Hampshire.

Richard Husband, of New Forest Drive, Brockenhurst, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of causing death by careless driving.

He is due to appear at Bournemouth Crown Court for trial today.

The 26-year-old was charged in connection with an ambulance crash on the A337 Brockenhurst to Lyndhurst road on April 27 last year.

Paramedic Gillian Randall, 42, and 88-year-old Francis Ironside were killed when the ambulance veered off the road and into a tree.

Mr Ironside’s 64-year-old son David, who was travelling in the back of the ambulance, and paramedic Richard Riley, 32, also suffered serious injuries.
