Hill v Baxter (1958)

The defendant drove through a halt sign and he told the magistrates that he could not remember anything for some distance before he did this. The defendant was acquitted of dangerous driving because of this. The Divisional Court allowed the prosecution's appeal and the case went back to the magistrates with a direction to convict as there was not any evidence to support a defence of automatism.
