Driver in court after man suffers fractured skull while walking dog in Lincoln village

A 20-year-old motorist has appeared in court accused of causing serious injury to a man while driving through Nettleham.

Luke Booth is alleged to have caused serious injury to Oliver Samkin by driving dangerously in Mill Hill, Nettleham, on January 21 this year.

Booth, of Fiskerton Road, Reepham, indicated a not guilty plea to the charge when he appeared at Lincoln Magistrates’ Court today.

The court heard Mr Samkin was walking a dog with a child in Nettleham at the time of the incident.

He suffered multiple injuries including a bleed on the brain and a fractured skull, and was unable to walk or work for several months, the court was told.

District Judge Peter Veits granted Booth bail and adjourned the case until December 18 when he will appear at Lincoln Crown Court.
