A MOTHER said she would not forget a single detail of the day that her two-year-old daughter died after a road traffic collision involving an articulated truck.
Patrick Corcoran, with an address at Castlefarm Stud, Narraghmore, Athy, pleaded not guilty at Waterford Circuit Court to careless driving, thereby causing the death of Daenerys Crosbie Callaghan on November 18, 2014 at Manor Street.
Daenery’s mum Carole Anne Crosbie gave an account of what happened that morning. She said she was late for work and her daughter was late for her first day of crèche. She was just a few feet away from the crèche on Manor Street when she tried to cross the road. Carole Anne said traffic was still on her side when she stepped down off the footpath. The other side started to flow and she noticed the truck started to move. Both mother and daughter went under.
The trial continues. Read the full report in next week’s Waterford News & Star.
