Doherty in court over incident

by  | 

Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty will appear in court over a hit-and-run incident involving his manager.

Andrew Boyd was driving a Daimler - allegedly belonging to Doherty - when he struck a pedestrian in Suffolk.

It is alleged that Doherty allowed Boyd to use the car without insurance.

Chris Corder, 42, suffered serious injuries in the incident in Hadleigh, Suffolk, last September and remains in a coma, his family said.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said: "A 30-year-old man from Wiltshire has been summonsed to court to answer a charge of permitting the use of a vehicle without insurance following a road traffic collision on Sunday 27 September 2009 in Hadleigh."

Doherty is due to appear before Lowestoft magistrates on February 24 - the same day Boyd will be sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court.

Boyd, 42, of north London, previously admitted dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision, driving without reasonable consideration, driving with no insurance, failing to report an accident and driving without a licence.
