AN AMBULANCE driver has denied causing a crash which killed a pedestrian in Abingdon.

Prosecutors claim that Angus McCullock, of Main Road, Long Hanborough, caused the death of Adrian Hesford because of his 'dangerous' driving.

The 23-year old appeared at Oxford Crown Court today facing the single count of causing death by dangerous driving.

McCullock was the driver of a white Mercedes Sprinter S19 ambulance together with one woman passenger.
