Accidental death verdict on woman teacher killed as she jogged along Fenland road
A WELNEY woman told an inquest she had no recollection of the fateful morning she ploughed into and killed a jogger.
Tina Gude, 31, was the driver of a Fiat Punto which ran into school teacher Katherine Colson who was out for an early morning run near Littleport.
Ms Gude told the inquest she could remember nothing from leaving her home that day to the moment she was cut free from the wreckage of her car by fire fighters.
The inquest recorded a verdict of accidental death.
Another motorist who had seen Ms Colson out jogging in the early morning of October 29 last year said it was very dark and they were surprised to see someone out at that time.

Her head teacher Geoff Barton said Miss Colson “was one of our most skilful teachers and was admired by all who knew her. Her talent, professionalism and endless optimism were an inspiration to us all. Her loss is devastating.”
