Stoke Man Sentenced to 40 months After Horror Crash
Douglas Lloyd prosecuted a driver at fault for a collision which hospitalised a family, and resulted in a 10-year-old girl having her leg amputated. The girl’s mother suffered a bleed on the brain and fractured vertebrae; and the family dog was killed in the collision.
There was evidence the driver was over the drink-drive limit and an expert report concluded that he had reached speeds of 78mph moments before the collision on a 30mph residential street. The defendant was jailed for 40 months for two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
