A DRIVER accused of killing a baby was suffering from blackouts hours beforehand, a court heard.

James Paul Davis, 34, is said to have mounted a pavement, pinning two-week-old Ciaran Leigh Morris’s pram against a shop wall.

The infant is thought to have been on his first trip out with his parents Camaron Morris and Codie Holyman, both 18.

Prosecutors said Davis had, according to his partner, been suffering from blackouts and headaches the day before Easter Sunday’s 4pm tragedy.

He allegedly fled after his BMW 1 Series collided with a Ford B-Max before he lost control and hit the pram.

Davis — arrested nearby after the horror in Walsall, West Mids — confirmed his name and date of birth when he appeared before Wolverhampton JPs yesterday.

He is accused of causing death by dangerous driving and causing death by driving while uninsured.

Davis, who was said to have been threatened with attacks, is also charged with failing to stop at the scene of a collision and failure to report a collision.
