THE 'disappointed' family of James Dixon have responded to a court ruling which saw Crowthorne woman Agne Jasulaitiene found 'not guilty' of causing two counts of death by careless driving.

Police constable James "Dixie" Dixon was killed in Wargrave 2017 when he crashed into a car being driven by registered-carer Ms Jasulaitiene, with such force that her Toyota Aygo flipped over three times, the jury at Reading Crown Court was told last week.

The passenger in Ms Jasulaitiene's car, 91-year-old Gladys Goodwin, was also killed in the collision.

Yesterday, (January 21) Ms Jasulaitiene was found not guilty after an hour of deliberations by the jury.

Mr Dixon's wife, Samantha, said on behalf of Mr Dixon's family: "Whilst we are disappointed with the verdict, regardless of the outcome it would never have changed the most important fact about this tragic case, and that is myself and the rest of James’ family have lost a husband, father, son and brother.

"He was also a friend to so many.

"Thames Valley Police have lost a committed and highly professional officer and respected colleague.

"He will be forever missed and never forgotten.

"My heart and thoughts also extend to the family of Gladys Goodwin, in particular Sandie, David, Beth and Joe.

"They also lost a key member of their family in this collision.

"We now need to process all the distressing things we've seen and heard over the last seven days of the trial and then attempt to move forward as best we can."

Matthew Claxson, Partner at Moore Blatch - who represents Samantha Dixon, said: "This avoidable collision is a tragedy in which three families have been affected, including that of PC James Dixon and Gladys Goodwin.

"Sadly, road traffic collisions involving motorcyclist victims are far too common, and at Moore Blatch we continue to campaign for improved road safety protections."

Earlier in the trial, defence lawyer Ian Bridge said of Ms Jasulaitiene's driving: "We submit that on that day there was nothing about [Jasulaitiene's] driving which was capable of real or serious criticism.

"What was exceptional was that, coming in the opposite direction with his surveillance motorbike, a motorbike designed not to be seen, was a police officer who, at the outside of the range of speeds, we say, was travelling at more than twice the speed limit.

"Because of the speed of the bike, a bike hit a car and because of the speed turned the car over three times.

"We say there is not sufficient evidence for you to reach the conclusion so you are sure that the driving was careless."
