Teenager Pleads Guilty To Manslaughter

A teenager has pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of a woman after a road crash in south-east Suffolk.

The three car collision happened in Bromeswell at the junction of C340 on the B1083 just after 9:30pm on Thursday 3 February.

The driver of a Vauxhall Corsa, 20-year-old Laureen Hammond from Sutton near Woodbridge, was certified dead at the scene.

The driver of a Fiat Stilo, Luke Burdakay, was subsequently arrested and charged with a number of serious offences.

Luke Burdakay, a 19-year-old unemployed man from Birkfield Drive in Ipswich appeared at Ipswich Crown Court on Thursday 3rd March and pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Laureen Hammond and the attempted robbery of Trawlers Catch Fish Shop on Saxmundham High Street on Saturday 29 January.

Investigating Officer, Pc Allie Cotton, said: "This collision was caused by Luke Burdakay’s total disregard for the safety of others on the road and, as a result, a family have lost a loved one. This was a senseless and needless collision caused solely by his actions."

Luke Burdakay was further remanded in custody until his appearance at the same court on Thursday 31 March for sentencing.
