A woman has been charged with causing the death of a Workington pensioner by driving without due care and attention.
Rychenda Edgar, 22, of Dryden Way, Egremont, denied the accusation when she appeared in court in connection with the death of great-grandmother Marjorie Borwick.
Mrs Borwick, 71, of Cockfield Drive, Workington, was walking to a grandchild’s christening when she was involved in a collision on the A595 at Bigrigg, near Egremont, on December 4 2011.
She died in the West Cumberland Hospital, Whitehaven.
Her family said at the time that Mrs Borwick – who had six children, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren – was a “very happy, fun and loving person” and had been looking forward to the christening.
Edgar appeared before West Cumbria Magistrates Court and was remanded on unconditional bail until October 10.
The case will be sent to crown court.
