Suffolk Court Date For Rock Star

3 February 2010, 11:43

Rock star Pete Doherty is to appear in court accused of letting his manager use his car without insurance, it emerged today.

Andrew Boyd was driving a Daimler - allegedly Doherty's - when he hit a pedestrian in Hadleigh on September 27 last year.

Chris Corder, 42, was seriously injured in the crash and remains in a coma, his family said.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said: "A 30-year-old man from Wiltshire has been summonsed to court to answer a charge of permitting the use of a vehicle without insurance following a road traffic collision on Sunday 27 September 2009 in Hadleigh.'' Doherty, the former Libertines member and Babyshambles frontman, is due to appear before Lowestoft magistrates on February 24 - the same day Boyd will be sentenced at Ipswich Crown Court.

Boyd, 42, of north London, previously admitted dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of a road traffic collision, driving without reasonable consideration, driving with no insurance, failing to report an accident and driving without a licence.
