A speeding Audi driver who left a woman with life-long injuries after ploughing into her car at 90mph has been spared jail – so he can spend time with his children.
Dad-of-two Gurdeep Notay, 29, shot out of a T-junction in a Warwickshire village and ploughed into Debbie Ratcliffe’s car moments after colliding with a police car.
He then fled the scene, leaving Mrs Ratcliffe trapped with a broken and dislocated ankle before trying to blame her for the crash when he was arrested.
Notay, of Rugby, Warks., was sentenced to 21 months suspended for two years after he admitted causing serious injury by dangerous driving at Coventry Crown Court on Friday (7/12).
He was ordered to do 200 hours of unpaid work and banned from driving for four years.
Recorder Anupama Thompson said: “You overtook another car, and as you did that you collided with a police officer’s vehicle.
“Instead of stopping, you carried on at even greater speed.
“You then approached a T-junction.
“Instead of stopping and coming to your senses, you carried on without even remotely attempting to slow down, and as a result collided with the vehicle driven by Miss Ratcliffe.
