Fatal Hit & Run with Police Chase

Police have released CCTV footage of Matthew Tvrdon's hit and run rampage across Cardiff that killed mother-of-three Karina Menzies. The van driver who mowed down and killed a mother-of-three in a hit-and-run rampage intended to kill many more, a court has heard. Matthew Tvrdon, 31, avoided running down children but allegedly meant to kill at least one adult in every group he targeted. Karina Menzies, 32, died in the devastation wrought by Tvrdon during the eight mile, 30-minute rampage in Cardiff last October. At the wheel of a three-ton van, he purposely mounted kerbs and targeted five groups of parents with children. He appeared at Cardiff Crown Court on videolink where a series of previous guilty pleas were accepted. The prosecution accepts he was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia at the time of the rampage. It accepted a plea of manslaughter with diminished responsibility in relation to Ms Menzies' death after Tvrdon denied murder.
