A 25 year old woman who caused serious injuries to a cyclist after she knocked him off his bike and into a tree has been jailed for three years.
Damien Doughty spent three days in intensive care for serious injuries including a punctured lung, broken hand and a severe laceration to his liver after Justine Henshaw-Bryan drove into him.
Ms Henshaw-Bryan was found guilty by a jury at Wood Green Crown Court of causing serious injury by dangerous driving. Sentencing her, Judge Gregory Perrins told her:
“This was a calculated attempt to run him over and use your car as a weapon,
“It would have been obvious that to do so would have carried significant risk of injury.”
The judge added that Ms Henshaw-Bryan’s actions on 10 February 2016 could have killed Mr Doughty.
