West Mercia Police officer charged with causing death by dangerous driving

A police constable serving with West Mercia Police has been charged with causing death by dangerous driving. It follows an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

PC Jamie Holloway, aged 49, is to appear at Kidderminster Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday 14 July.

He is accused of causing death by dangerous driving during an incident on the A449 in Hartlebury, Worcestershire on 28 May 2018. The police car he was driving while responding to an emergency call was involved in a collision with a vehicle driven by a 53-year-old man, who sadly died days later in hospital.

At the end of our investigation in April 2019, we referred our report to the Crown Prosecution Service who subsequently decided to bring the charge after reviewing the evidence.
