A VAN driver has admitted causing the death of a pensioner by dangerous driving.
Ross Murrell, 22, of Chestnut Drive, Hassocks, Brighton, pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving following a collision on the B1190 at Thimbleby near Horncastle on August 3, last year.
Murrell's van collided head-on with a Suzuki Swift car driven by 70-year-old John Hextall.
Mr Hextall, who had recently moved to the village of Bucknall, was taken to Lincoln County Hospital where he died as a result of his injuries.
Murrell was bailed by Recorder Jalil Asif QC to appear back in court for sentence at a later date.
