Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been sentenced for causing serious injury by dangerous driving, driving whilst over the prescribed limit for drugs, and using a vehicle on a road without third party insurance.
Sohail Iqbal Khan, aged 24, of Leopold Walk, Reading, was given a three year sentence for causing serious injury by dangerous driving. He has also been disqualified from driving for four years.
He was sentenced on Wednesday, 28 February at Reading Crown Court.
At a previous court hearing at Reading Crown Court on 3 January Khan pleaded guilty to all three counts.
Investigating officer, PC Gareth Miles of Three Mile Cross Roads Policing Team, said, “On 31 March last year Sohail Iqbal Khan was driving a VW Adam car on the Wokingham Road at the junction of Amber Close, Earley, when he collided with a motorcyclist.
“When Khan collided with the motorcyclist, a 22-year-old man, the victim sustained a fractured right femur, fractured right tibia and fibula, fractures to his neck and lower back.
“This case shows the dangers of driving whilst being under the influence of illegal drugs. It has left a motorcyclist with serious life changing injuries. I am pleased that the courts have looked at this offence seriously and hopefully Mr Khan will have time to reflect on the consequences of his actions in March last year.”
