Pedestrian In Collision With A BMW On The Avenue On Friday Night
Bournemouth Driver Jailed Over Fatal A35 Crash
A Bournemouth man's been jailed for more than 6 years over a crash that killed another driver in Dorset.
49-year-old van driver Stephen Fawcett from Cleveland died in a collision with David Churcher on the A35 near Bridport on August 19 last year.
The 32-year-old from Singleton Drive admitted causing death by dangerous driving.
He was sentenced today (August 15) TO six years and six months in prison and was given a ten month driving disqualification.
Stephen's family released a statement saying:
"It is with a heavy heart that today we received some justice seeing Mr David Churcher sentenced to a lengthy prison term, but no matter how long he serves it will not be enough as he has robbed a family of a great man.
"We would also like to thank Dorset Police for all the hard work they put in to bring David Churcher to justice."
Officers say many of those were after people didn't secure their car properly.
James Hemming pleaded guilty to wounding with intent after a 17-year-old girl was badly injured in Fratton.
Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
