Woman On TWO Phones Jailed After Crash

A woman who caused a fatal crash on the A47 while using two phones to text AND make calls has been jailed for 6 years.

Marina Usaceva who's 31 and from Padholme Road in Peterborough was in a jaguar which crashed into the back of a peaugot at Thorney Toll last March - pushing the car into the path of an oncoming lorry.

27 year old Sukhdeep Singh Johal from Leicester died at the scene.

She initially denied ever using her phone while driving but then admitted she had been caught twice on previous occasions, and later pleaded guilty to the charge of causing death by dangerous driving in court.

In a statement from Cambridgeshire Police, Sergeant Gordon Murray said: "To contemplate using one mobile phone while driving is unacceptable, to use two such devices beggars belief.

"I hope that all road users, drivers and passengers will take note as to the seriousness of such behaviour. A passenger in a vehicle should challenge any driver they see committing this offence.

"The use of mobile phones when a vehicle is in motion is unacceptable.

"Drivers need to take themselves back to basics and concentrate on driving and leave the modern culture of using such electronic portable devices until they have stopped.

"Drivers need to think what the consequences could be. That call or text might just change your life and that of those involved."
