‘Sab­o­tage’ probe af­ter killer crash

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A WOMAN was killed in a hor­ror smash af­ter her car’s tyres were sab­o­taged, say cops.

Joanna Smith ( above), 32, was pro­nounced dead at the scene when her Honda Jazz was in­volved in the smash on the A45 near Earls Bar­ton in April.

Foren­sic tests have shown that one of the tyres on the car had been de­lib­er­ately tam­pered with be­fore she be­gan her jour­ney.

Now po­lice have launched a man­slaugh­ter probe, which they say is the “first of its kind in the UK”.

Joanna’s car was parked in a com­mu­nal car park near her home in Northamp­ton when it was dam­aged.

Fol­low­ing the crash of­fi­cers were told that a fur­ther three ve­hi­cles parked close her’s had also had tyres dam­aged at the same time.

An East Mid­lands po­lice spokesman said: “We be­lieve that some­one de­lib­er­ately dam­aged the tyre on Joanna’s car which re­sulted in her death.

“This is a com­plex in­ves­ti­ga­tion, which we be­lieve is the first of its kind in the UK.” BOND babe Britt Eck­land is the girl with the golden un­der­car­riage – as she flashes her gus­set on a night out in Lon­don.
