Woman seeks compensation over fatal road traffic accident

Woman seeks compensation over fatal road traffic accident

A woman whose husband died in a road traffic accident is seeking compensation for her loss.

In April 2007, Liam Corr was travelling along the Warminster bypass when he was caught in a seven-vehicle pile-up.

The incident is said to have been caused by two fellow motorists, Peter Bowyer and Graham Hooper, who began racing each other between Westbury and Warminster - which is a town located in west Wiltshire.

Mr Hooper and Mr Corr died at the scene of the collision, while Mr Bowyer was jailed for six-and-a-half years for causing death by dangerous driving.

He was also banned from driving for seven years but this was reduced to five years after he appealed.

Mr Corr's widow and her young daughter are suing the personal representative of the late Mr Hooper in a bid to secure unlimited damages of more than £300,000 and the case remains ongoing.
