In his second drink driving conviction, a man has been banned from driving for three years and sentenced at Manchester Crown Court to two years and four months in jail after causing a head-on collision with another car on Briscoe Lane, Newton Heath. The 33-year old woman driving the other car suffered such extensive injuries that she is wheelchair-bound and will as a result be unable to bear children. She said she would be struggling with the effects of the accident long after he completed his jail sentence.
The court was told that the victim suffered multiple broken bones in the crash and was in so much pain that she begged her husband to let her die. She required several operations after being cut from the wreckage of her car and has been left badly scarred with deformed limbs. She has been informed by doctors that the damage to her hips has made it impossible for her to bear children.
