A woman has been sentenced over a car crash which claimed the lives of two girls.
Marie Easter, 44, admitted two charges of causing death by careless driving.
She was sentenced at Norwich Crown Court today to 15 months imprisonment suspended for two years and disqualified from driving for four years, with a compulsory re-test.
Steve Matthews of Norfolk Constabulary’s Serious Collision Investigation Team said:
This is a terribly sad case where families’ lives have been torn apart by the deaths of two young girls. What began as a festive treat turned into a tragedy due to the careless driving of Easter.
Other factors may have contributed to the severity of the collision, but ultimately Easter’s driving was substandard and caused the sisters’ deaths. I extend my sympathies to their families and friends as they begin another year without Tamzin and Jessica.
