At a pre-inquest review held at Beaconsfield Coroners’ Court today (Tuesday) assistant coroner Nicholas Graham revealed that police have prepared a file on the incident and that the Crown Prosecution Service is considering whether to bring charges.

After undergoing surgery at John Radcliffe Hospital, Ms Harrison was moved to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, where she underwent end-of-life care before she passed away from the injuries she sustained in the fatal smash.

Mr Graham said: “She was involved in a head-on road traffic collision and was a passenger within the vehicle.

“A file of papers has been prepared by Thames Valley Police because they are concerned as to whether there is any criminal activity that may have occurred, resulting in the death.

“I believe that file is now with the Crown Prosecution Service who are giving consideration to whether they wish to undertake a criminal prosecution.”

Mr Graham opted to adjourn the hearing to a further pre-inquest review, which will take place on December 16.
