On Thursday 14th October Mr Clifford Rennie appeared at Wycombe Magistrates Court, charged with two counts of causing death by driving without due care and attention — the second hearing of the case in relation to the deaths of local cyclists, Damien Natale and Andy Coles.
The prosecuting lawyer indicated that there was no evidence that Mr Rennie was exceeding the 60 mph speed limit or that he was using a mobile phone at the time but stated that he effectively "ploughed into the back of them."
The solicitor representing Mr Rennie mentioned that glare from the low sunlight was a feature, as were pockets of shade along that stretch of road.
Mr Rennie pleaded guilty to the charges and was referred to the crown court for sentencing, at a date to be determined.
