Porsche fatal crash man jailed for careless driving

A man who admitted causing the death of an 84-year-old woman by careless driving after a crash in Lincolnshire has been jailed for 18 months.

Dean Wright, 48, of Dale View Meadows, North Hykeham, also got a two-year driving ban at Lincoln Crown Court and must take an extended driving re-test.

He was driving his Porsche 911 when it collided with a Suzuki Vitara on the B1188 at Dunston in May 2009.

Eileen Holvey, a passenger in the Suzuki, later died in hospital.

Her husband Horace, 84, who was driving the car, broke his leg.
