A motorist has been sentenced after a collision with schoolchildren and a lollipop lady in Weymouth.
Steven Dukes, 49 and from Weymouth, admitted careless driving at Weymouth Magistrates' Court and has been banned from driving for six months and fined £240.
A Vauxhall Zafira driven by Dukes hit three 11-year-old schoolchildren and the 56-year-old lollipop lady on Buxton Road on Monday 31 October 2016.
One of the schoolchildren suffered a broken arm while the other two had minor injuries. The lollipop lady sustained a fractured skull, a small bleed to the brain and a broken wrist. She is now recovering at home.
Mr Dukes' careless driving that afternoon left a woman with serious, life-changing injuries. It is very fortunate the schoolchildren were not more seriously hurt.
He failed to observe the road ahead appropriately and reduce his speed accordingly.
This was a totally avoidable collision and this incident serves as a warning to others to drive carefully and considerately, particularly in residential areas.
