HILL V. BAXTER
In this case, a man succeeded in driving a substantial distance before having an accident. He was charged with dangerous driving. He could not remember anything from before the accident or immediately after the accident. It was suggested that he was not conscious of what he was doing and that he was capable of forming any intention as to his manner of driving. The reason for this is because he succumbed to an unknown illness and so was not able to control his actions. The judge in this case held that only a voluntary act or omission can qualify as an actus reus.
