Stavius Gordon, 31, of HMP Peterborough, was riding his KTM motorcycle along Ditton Lane in Cambridge just before 6pm on September 9 last year.

Gordon collided with an Audi travelling in the opposite direction into Dunsmore Close.

He flipped off his bike as it burst into flames causing damage to the Audi and a nearby private ambulance.

Gordon initially denied riding the motorcycle but thanks to dashcam footage and statements from other motorists, who witnessed his driving in the lead up to the collision, he was charged with driving without due care and attention.

At Cambridge Crown Court on Thursday (September 21) Gordon pleaded guilty to driving otherwise in accordance with a licence, driving without due care and attention and driving without insurance. He was given a £120 fine and nine points on his licence.

PC Sarah Pride said: “I would like to thank witnesses who came forward and described Gordon’s manner of driving in the moments leading up to the crash.

“Gordon lost a toe as a result of the collision but it was thanks to his helmet that it wasn’t anything more serious. He had a provisional licence and will need to reapply.”
