[2012] EWCA Crim 2909

Where a lorry driver charged with causing death by careless driving had parked his vehicle and alighted, leaving it blocking most of one side of the road, and another lorry had collided with it, the judge had been correct to reject a submission of no case to answer based on the argument that the relevant driving had ended by the time of the impact. It was for the jury to decide whether the admitted driving had been careless and whether it had caused the death of the other driver, rather than merely causing the circumstances for the accident to occur.
