A 30-year-old man has been jailed for two years and eight months for a serious collision in Chester which left a woman unable to walk unaided for three months.
Steve Lee Hubbard, of Hawthorne Road, Castle Bromwich, was sentenced at Chester Crown Court on Thursday (May 21) after pleading guilty to causing injuries by dangerous driving, driving whilst unfit through drugs, driving without insurance and driving without a valid licence.
On September 8 last year, the grey Mitsubishi Space Star that Hubbard was driving veered across the central reservation of Lache Lane into the path of oncoming vehicles, colliding with a silver Toyota Yaris and white Ford KA which were travelling in the opposite direction.
A Chester woman sustained serious injuries in the collision.
Witnesses in the case described Hubbard’s driving as ‘erratic’ and ‘insane’, stating that he had no thought for the safety of other road users at the time the collision occurred.
Police Constable Peter Taylor from Cheshire Constabulary said: “This was an extremely serious collision, and were it not for the actions taken by other drivers involved in the crash then we would now be dealing with a fatal collision.
“The injuries suffered by one of the victims were extremely serious, and I hope that the sentence handed to Hubbard today will bring some form of closure to all of those involved.”
Hubbard was also disqualified from driving for five years.
