A 21-year-old man has been jailed for causing death by dangerous driving after a woman was killed while walking her dog in Iver.

Billy Silcox pleaded guilty to the charge at Reading Crown Court yesterday.

On March 5 last year at 2.10pm 46-year-old Baljit Kaur suffered fatal injuries when hit by a Yamaha motorbike while walking her dog in Langley Park Road.

She died at the scene.

Investigations revealed that Silcox was riding the motorbike at 87mph in a 40mph limit when the collision happened. Shortly before this it was revealed he had been riding the motorbike through a pedestrian area. He did not have a driving licence or insurance and the motorbike had been reported stolen from London.

He was sentenced to three years and six months imprisonment, disqualified from driving for five years and nine months and will be required to take an extended driving test.

Investigating officer Sergeant Darren Brown of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Firstly, I would like to send my sincere condolences to Ms Kaur’s family. Baljit was innocently walking her dog when she died following the dangerous actions of Silcox. He was riding a motorbike at more than double the speed limit when the collision happened.

“It has been established, if Silcox was travelling at the speed limit, Ms Kaur would have been able to safely cross the road and she would still be alive today.

“The sentence given to Silcox could never represent the loss to Ms Kaur’s family but we hope it provides a starting point for the family to begin the grieving process.

“Until yesterday, when he admitted the charge, Silcox has shown no remorse during the investigation.

“Our thoughts remains with Ms Kaur’s family at this tragic time.”
