Braking delay ‘led to woman’s death’

An 86-year-old woman died after she was thrown from her bus seat when the driver braked hard to avoid a van turning in Kent, a court has heard.

Beatrice Meager died in hospital from complications 15 days after the incident, near Dartford, in 2016.

Greg Emmerson, from Gravesend, who was driving the Arriva bus, denies causing death by dangerous driving.

Maidstone Crown Court heard there was a crucial delay before 26-year-old Mr Emmerson braked.
