Miss Jasulaitiene appeared at Reading Crown Court on trial for two counts of causing death by careless driving when she tried to turn off the A4 Bath Road onto Blake’s Lane in Wargrave, at around 1.50pm on Tuesday, December 5, 2017.

Prosecutors said father-to-be Pc Dixon, 39, was killed when his police motorbike hit the car travelling in the opposite direction.

An elderly passenger in Jasulaitiene's car, Gladys Goodwin, also died in the incident, which took place as Jasulaitiene was driving her home from a lunch which the carer had taken her to during her day off, the jury was told.

During the two week trial, Miss Jasulaitiene described herself as “a very confident driver” while giving evidence at Reading Crown Court.

The court heard she was driving at 30mph on the 50pmh road and had been seen by a couple, Mr and Mrs Tanner, indicating to turn, although cancelled the signal as she did so.

It is as she turned, the driver crashed with a police motorbike which the court heard was believed to have been travelling at an "excessive speed".

Ellie Fargin, prosecuting, describing what the Tanners witnesses,  said: "They described it like a bomb going off under the car, an explosion and the car lifted and overturned."

Ms Fargin said experts had agreed on a range of speeds which Pc Dixon could have been travelling at, which were 73mph to 88mph.

The jury today returned not guilty verdicts on both counts after an hour of deliberations.
