A MAN has pleaded not guilty to causing the deaths of a paramedic and an elderly man following a horror crash.
Richard Husband, of New Forest Drive, Brockenhurst, denied two counts of causing death by careless driving at Bournemouth Crown Court this morning.
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 in the collision after 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.
Husband, who wore a suit to the court, spoke to confirm his name and enter his plea.
