A stolen lorry left "utter carnage" when it ploughed into cars and then a house, killing a woman out power-walking near her home, prosecutors have said.

A jury has heard how Jacqueline Wileman, 58, died when she was hit by the tractor unit of a truck after the driver lost control in the village of Brierley, near Barnsley, as he was being followed by a police car.

The lorry then ploughed into a house, leaving the building extensively damaged, Sheffield Crown Court heard.

Prosecutor Jason Pitter QC said: "The scene was one of utter carnage, indicating the dangerous way the vehicle was being driven."

Mr Pitter said the truck was travelling at at least twice the 30mph speed limit and on the wrong side of the road.

CCTV footage was shown to the jury which shows Mrs Wileman walking briskly along the pavement.

Moments later, a white truck is seen speeding past and debris rises from a violent collision with a car just out of shot.

The prosecutor told the jury that Mrs Wileman had been power-walking near her home at the time of the crash on September 14, last year.

He said her desire to maintain her fitness "tragically and ironically led to her death".

Three men on trial, David Mellor, Wayne Carroll and Alan Mawhinney, all deny the same charge.

Mr Pitter said these men were all in the cab with Hill at the time of the collision.

Mellor, 48, of Bank End Road, Worsbrough Dale, South Yorkshire, denies causing death by dangerous driving.

Carroll, 29, of Chestnut Street, Grimethorpe, South Yorkshire, denies causing death by dangerous driving and aggravated vehicle taking.

Mawhinney, 53, of Calder Crescent, Kendray, South Yorkshire, denies causing death by dangerous driving and aggravated vehicle taking.

"It's tempting to say this was simply a case of Mrs Wileman being in the wrong place at the wrong time. But that would be to mistake the reality.
