A JURY was expected to retire today to consider their verdicts in the case of two drivers accused of causing the death of a 68-year-old woman passenger in a crash more than two years ago.
Janine Scarfe has denied she was driving her Vauxhall Corsa at around 100 mph leading up to the collision with a Peugeot 307 being driven by victim Dawn Routledge's partner.
Mrs Routledge, of Old Bank, Ripponden, died after suffering a ruptured heart in the crash at Highmoor Lane, Clifton, Brighouse, in April 2004.
Scarfe has claimed her speed was around 60 mph.
Asked by her barrister John Broadley to explain what caused the crash, Scarfe told Bradford Crown Court: "I just don't know what happened. I really wish I knew -- I just don't know."
Scarfe, 25, of Langdale Avenue, Wyke, Bradford, has pleaded not guilty to causing the death of Mrs Routledge by dangerous driving.
Sheldon Brooks, 25, of Windermere Road, Carnforth, has also pleaded not guilty to the same charge.
The prosecution allege both defendants were racing at high speed, shortly before Scarfe's car collided with a car driven by Mrs Routledge's partner, Stewart Andrews.
The trial continues.
