Complainant Name:
Mr Rodney B Price

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Selby Post

Complaint:

Mr Rodney B Price complained that an article which reported a road traffic accident in which he was involved was inaccurate and misleading.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the newspaper published the following correction and apology:

Our article of 23 October headlined ‘Lucky escape in caravan crash’ stated that a caravan, which was being towed by a Kia Sorrento, had “jack-knifed” into the path of an oncoming Volkswagen Caravelle. We have been asked to make clear that, contrary to our report, Rodney Price, the driver of the Volkswagen, suffered superficial upper body, upper limb and facial injuries in the crash. Mr Price also states that the caravan did not “jack-knife”, but was rather lost while being towed. We are sorry for any confusion our original article may have caused.

Report: 78
