Cranleigh bus queue crash: Horsham man jailed

A driver has been jailed for 16 months after crashing into a queue of people waiting at a Surrey bus stop.

Robert Freeman, 23, who failed to stop after the crash, admitted dangerous driving at an earlier hearing at Guildford Crown Court.

During sentencing on Thursday, Freeman, a carpenter from Horsham, West Sussex, was banned from driving for five years.

Two men were hurt when his 4x4 vehicle crashed into the bus queue in Cranleigh's High Street in August 2011.

Freeman had also admitted driving without insurance, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and failing to report a collision, but the judge said there would be no separate penalty for those offences.

Two other charges of perverting the course of justice and driving while disqualified were ordered to lie on file.
