Last updated at 08:54, Thursday, 17 April 2014
THE sentencing of a Barrow milkman who left a cyclist for dead has been adjourned.
David Reid, 71, of Abbots Vale, Barrow, was found not guilty of causing serious injury by dangerous driving by a jury in Preston Crown Court.
However, the jury found him guilty of the lesser charge of careless driving.
Sentencing is expected to take place today and Judge His Honour Graham Knowles told Reid he should not expect a custodial sentence.
The crash, in Bank Lane, Barrow, took place at around 6.15am on February 27 last year and left submariner Paul Reynolds in a coma until August last year - he is now in a care home and requires two carers for all daily tasks.
Reid was due to be sentenced yesterday but Judge His Honour Graham Knowles adjourned the case for sentence until August 4.
