Hit ’n’ run lad shopped by his mum
A HIT-AND-RUN driver who ploughed into a jogger and left her for dead has been jailed after being shopped by his MUM.
Nicholas Smith, 22, had just finished a night shift and downed a pint of beer with his breakfast before driving home.
But he lost control of his car and struck Mushina Sarwar as she ran along a road in Frampton Cotterell, South Glocs.
Instead of reporting the incident he left the scene and went home, telling his mum that someone hit his car.
But she heard about the hit-and-run and realised her son was to blame before taking him back to the scene to confess.
Smith, 22, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and failing to stop at the scene of a collision at Bristol Crown Court.
Jailing him for eight months, Judge Carol Hagen praised his mother’s conduct as “very responsible”.
Smith was also banned from driving for two years.
