A MAN has been jailed after admitting to his second hit and run, of which killed a pedestrian, and then driving away from the scene in Wraysbury, Windsor. 

Gary Heffenden, 21, of Wateringbury Road, kent, was sentenced on Tuesday, April 6, at Reading Crown Court after being sentenced for a number of hit and run incidents.

The sentencing comes after an incident on August 16, 2018, when Haffenden was driving on Lower Road, Minster, kent, when he crashed head-on with a driver travelling in the opposite direction.

The opposing driver received life-changing injuries as a result of the crash, and Haffenden drove away without stopping at the scene.

Then once again on March 17, 2019, Haffenden was driving on Wraysbury Road, Wraysbury, when he was involved in a crash with a pedestrian who died at the scene. Again, Haffenden did not stop the car at the incident.

Royal Borough Observer:

Haffenden was sentenced to three years' imprisonment in court yesterday after admitting to one count of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, causing death by careless driving, causing death whilst uninsured and failing to stop after a road accident. 

He has also been disqualified from driving for four years and six months total. 

Investigating officer, PC Joy Jarvis, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “I am pleased that Haffenden has now been sentenced for these offences.

“His actions were completely unacceptable, driving away from the scene after both incidents.

“He has also been banned from driving for a considerable amount of time and I hope this allows him to reflect on his driving and the danger he put other road users in.”
