Pedestrian may not have heard Prius that killed him

Drunk pedestrian may not have heard Prius that killed him


A pedestrian who was killed when he was run over by a Toyota Prius may not have heard the vehicle approaching, a court has heard.

The victim was pronounced dead in hospital having suffered severe head trauma after he was hit by the hybrid car in Wokingham Road, Reading.
 
The driver pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving, and was banned for a year and a half. 

The Prius's hybrid drivetrain can run in all-electric mode during which time it produces almost no engine noise.
