40-year-old Jan Adamec from Haverhill, has been sentenced to three years and four months in jail for causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
28-year-old Shaun Whiter was helping his friend, 30-year-old Joey Abbs, change a tyre on July 1 when a Ford Focus crashed into their cars. Shaun had to have both his legs amputated.
Adamec fled the scene of the collision and returned home to Shetland Road, Haverhill, leaving his two victims in a serious condition at the side of the road.
"Your reaction I can only describe as despicable. You did absolutely nothing to assist... You reversed and drove around the injured man... That was callous in the extreme."
“Adamec showed a complete disregard for other road users and acted in a cowardly manner when he decided to leave Shaun and Joey by the roadside who were in need of urgent medical care.
“This sentence should serve as a deterrent to those persons who treat the roads like a playground. I would like to remind everyone that if you are involved in a collision where injury is caused, you must stop at the scene and report the collision to police.”
