Granny-killer trucker jailed
A SPEEDING Polish lorry driver who killed a greatgrandmother has been convicted over the crash.
Jaroslaw Mieczan, 44, wept in court as he was jailed for two and a half years for the smash on the A689 in November.
Maureen Smith, 86, of Brampton, Cumbria, died of “catastrophic injuries”, Carlisle crown court heard.
Mieczan, who denied causing death by dangerous driving, was doing 54mph when he swerved to avoid a Ford Fiesta and hit Mrs Smith’s Fiat Panda.
