A PENSIONER from Warrington has admitted causing serious injuries to a biker by driving in a dangerous manner.

It follows a crash last summer which saw a motorbike rider taken to hospital after suffering serious injuries.

In a statement at the time, Cheshire Police said that at around 5.55pm on July 28, 2022, officers were called to reports of a collision on the A556 Chester Road near to the Windmill pub in Tabley and junction 19 of the M6.

After attending the scene, officers found the incident involved a red MG car and a black Honda motorcycle.

“The rider of the motorbike, a 39-year-old man from Moulton, sustained serious injuries and was taken to the Royal Stoke University Hospital,” a force spokesman said.

“The driver of the car was uninjured.

“The road was closed while officers dealt with the incident. It reopened shortly after 8pm.”

A spokesman for North West Ambulance Service also, at the time, said: “We received a number of calls at around 5.49pm about a road traffic collision.

“We sent an ambulance to the scene and treated a male in his 30s with serious injuries, who was then taken to Royal Stoke University Hospital.”

Last month, George Green was charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving in connection with the incident.

No indication of plea was given during a first hearing at Crewe Magistrates’ Court, with the case then elevated to Chester Crown Court due to its severity.

The 87-year-old, of Warrington Road in Hatton, appeared before the crown court on Friday, where he entered a guilty plea.

The particulars of the charge he admitted state that on July 28 in Tabley, he caused serious injury by driving a mechanically propelled vehicle, namely an MG, dangerously on the A556 Chester Road.

Recorder Eric Lamb adjourned the sentencing until March in order for a pre-sentence report to be prepared.

Green was remanded on unconditional bail until his sentencing date and was made the subject of an interim driving disqualification.
