A WOMAN has been convicted of causing the death of a motorcyclist after a two-day trial.

Michelle Marshall, aged 54, was found guilty of causing death by careless driving after pulling out on to the A65 at Skipton in front of biker Dominic Lee.

Dominic, a 49-year-old Warrington businessman, had been travelling home to Trawden when the crash happened, on May 1 last year.

He was thrown from his Triumph Sprint ST and later died from his injuries.

Marshall, from Grassington, was accused of not looking properly before she turned right on to the A65, but had maintained she was not at fault for the tragedy.

She will be sentenced at Bradford Crown Court on July 1.

Dominic, originally from Accrington, was a partner in Boulsworth Services, a Westbrook-based business training company, and lived with his wife Tracey and three children, Joseph, Robyn and Iggy, in Trawden.

I really don't see how she could say she wasn't at fault. She's pulled onto the carriage way without giving a thought to the victim, causing him to crash. Although she way not have collided with the vehicle, her actions have caused his death. So very sad for all involved.

Most car drivers glance once, don't see a car coming, then pull out cos they don't see what they are expecting to see. Dozy cow deserves everything she gets.

I had been driving cars for app 14 years before taking my motorcycle test. I found that riding a motorbike made me a far better car driver.

As several of my instructors and friends have said, people should be made to ride a scooter / motorbike for at least 2 years before gaining a license to drive a car in a hope that it would make them far more conscious of other road users.
