A pensioner has denied causing serious injury by dangerous driving after an accident which led to the amputation of her friend’s leg.
Lynda Idle’s car is alleged to have struck Jeanette Maggs outside her home in Heath End Road, Dartford, pinning her against another vehicle on March 24 this year.
Ms Maggs, 66, had to have her left leg amputated at the knee and now walks with the aid of a crutch.
She watched from the public gallery at Maidstone Crown Court as 69-year-old Idle, of Vicarage Road, Bexley, entered a not guilty plea to the charge.
A trial date was set for the week beginning February 26 next year.
Prosecutor Tom Dunn said it was “a somewhat unusual case” in which it was alleged Ms Maggs was injured after her friend got out of her vehicle, having failed to apply the hand brake.
Bail was continued.
