Woman in Bradley Wiggins crash Cath Burrows faces summons for driving without due care and attention

 

A woman who allegedly knocked champion cyclist Bradley Wiggins off his bike with a van has been reported for summons by police.

After a formal interview, Cath Burrows, 44, has been summoned by Lancashire Police over driving without due care and attention.

It is understood that Burrows will not necessarily go to court but a file will be put together between the Force Road Policing Unit and Central Processing Unit with a recommendation as to what the sanction should be.

No decision will be made until the file has been finalised and reviewed.

Olympic star Wiggins, who this summer became the first Briton to win the Tour de France, was taken to hospital with a bruised hand and ribs after the collision near his home in Lancashire on Wednesday.

In a statement, a police spokesman said: "Following a voluntary attendance for interview with Lancashire Police, a 44-year-old woman from West Lancashire has been reported for summons for driving without due care and attention.
