Soham man guilty of double fatal death crash

A man has been found guilty of causing two deaths by dangerous driving following a crash in Cambridgeshire.

Paul Adams, 40, and Kathryn Dunn, 26, died in March 2007 on the A142 Fordham bypass between Soham and Newmarket.

Ben Edwards, 26, of Northfield Road, Soham, had denied the charges but was was found guilty at Cambridge Crown Court and will be sentenced in March.

The court heard Edwards was two times over the drink driving limit and was driving at speeds of up to 120mph.

'Irresponsible actions'

Mr Adams and Ms Dunn were on their way to an airport for a holiday in the Dominican Republic when Edwards' Mercedes SLK hit the couple's car on the wrong side of the road, the court heard.

Edwards received serious injuries in the collision which meant he was unable to face a trial for some time.

PC Steve Edwards, of Cambridgeshire Police, said: "This case has taken a long time to be brought to court and a lot of background work was done to prove Edwards was fit to stand trial.

"Edwards believed his driving wasn't dangerous, but it was proved he was over the drink drive limit and travelling at almost twice the speed limit when the collision occurred.

"His irresponsible actions resulted in the death of two people. This is an extremely sad case and my thoughts are with the couple's families."
