Chatteris Dangerous Driver Jailed
A Chatteris man has been jailed for a year and banned from driving for causing a crash that left another driver with serious injuries.
Robert Wing, 26, decided to overtake in his Volksgwagen Gti while driving along the A141 Isle of Ely Way at Wimblington at about 6.40pm on October 24 last year.
However, he collided head on with an oncoming vehicle, also a Volkswagen Gti, being driven by a man from Longstanton, now aged 69.
Both men suffered serious injuries and were taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge. The victim has not fully recovered and still makes regular visits to the hospital for treatment.
Wing, of Park Street, Chatteris, pleaded guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving and possession of cannabis, which was found in his vehicle following the collision.
He appeared at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday (Thursday, August 13) and was jailed, disqualified from driving for four years and given a £100 victim surcharge.
PC Andy Coop, who investigated the crash, said:
"Wing's overtaking manoeuvre was reckless and dangerous and it could easily have resulted in a fatal crash. This is reflected in the prison sentence and I hope it gives some comfort to the victim, whose life has been severely affected by the collision and is still recovering his health."
