Woman jailed for killing a pedestrian in Reading

Terrifying footage shows the moment a car barrelled into pedestrians, killing one, after the driver hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

Pertpall Sall has been jailed for two years and four months following the crash in Reading, Berkshire in December 2016.

Judge Paul Dugdale said: ‘This is not the sort of dangerous driving where you deliberately made the decision to drive badly. It’s a piece of driving where you made a serious mistake which had tragic consequences.

She didn't make a decision to drive dangerously? It looks to me like she was overtaking a car at the time when she shouldn't have been. She even tried to claim that the poor woman she killed was already under the rubble!

She got 28 months - that's just too lenient IMO.
