Jailed For Killing Pregnant Mother In Birmingham
A Birmingham man has been jailed for 12 months for causing the death of a pregnant mother in Small Heath.
Shammas Rehman, from Charles Road, Small Heath was driving his BMW 3 Series, when it mounted the kerb in Heybarnes Lane in September 2013.
The car hit Tarhira Parveen who was seven months pregnant with her third child and had just left her daughter for her first day at nursery. She was killed at the scene, while a four-year-old boy was seriously injured and a one-year-old was also hurt.
Rehman made an early guilty plea, which reduced his sentence by six months to a year. He'll also be banned from driving for two and a half years.
The judge at the trial said, it was "beyond belief how families cope with such tragedies."
Sergeant Paul Hughes from West Midlands Police said: "No sentence can undo such a tragedy − there are no winners here. A family has lost a wife and mother, along with the child she was carrying.
"Our thoughts remain with them as they continue to bear their loss."
