The US Air Force has asserted jurisdiction in the prosecution of a servicewoman charged with causing the death of a motorcyclist by careless driving, a court has heard.
Motorcyclist Matthew Day, 33, died from injuries after a red Honda Accord car collided with the Yamaha motorbike he was riding in Norfolk, at Southery near Downham Market, last Friday.
Airman first class Mikayla Hayes, 23, who is based at RAF Lakenheath in Suffolk, was released on conditional bail on Wednesday after appearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court.
Prosecutor Caroline Gardner said the US Air Force (USAF) has served the Crown Prosecution Service with a certificate under the 1952 Visiting Forces Act, which asserts jurisdiction.
