British Firefighter Found Not Guilty in Fatal Apparatus Case

The jury has returned a not guilty verdict in the case I reported on earlier this week of Bedfordshire firefighter Robert Hulatt, charged with one count of causing a death by dangerous driving, and a lesser charge of causing death by careless driving.

Hulatt was driving an engine company to a house fire on September 11, 2009 when his truck collided with another vehicle in an intersection, killing a 52 year old man and injuring 10 others. Hulatt was found not guilty of both charges.
