Dangerous Driver jailed for Crashing into Nursing Student’s Car

LONDON: Dangerous driver Adeel Khalid, aged 21, of Rochdale, was jailed for two years after he crashed into a nursing student’s car.

The collision on the A34 in Newcastle left the young woman with life-changing injuries.

Khalid was driving 31mph over the speed limit half a second before his Vauxhall Astra hit the side of the victim’s Vauxhall Corsa at approximately 4 am on March 4, 2018.

Prosecutor Laura Culley explained that the third-year nursing student at Keele University dropped off some friends at 4 am on March 4, 2018.

She was driving back to her student accommodation when the collision occurred.

Miss Culley said: “She approached the junction of Victoria Street and the A34 London Road. The road has a 40mph speed limit.

“The defendant’s Vauxhall Astra was in lane two going north and collided with her. The front of his vehicle went into the side of her car.
