Our thanks to Alex for this. The start of the piece:
A mother-of-two who killed a cyclist in a hit-and-run crash while over ten times the prescribed limit for cocaine and later told police she thought she had hit a fox has been jailed for five years.
Emma Moughan, 42, a public sector worker, was twice the drink-drive limit and over ten times the limit for cocaine when her Mercedes Benz ploughed into Patrick Hird in October last year.
York Crown Court heard the 61-year-old grandfather, who was cycling to work at the time in a hi-vis jacket, [J4MB: Maybe Ms Moughan thought the fox was wearing a hi-vis jacket?] hit the roof of Moughan’s car and fell onto the side of the road near Camblesforth in North Yorkshire.
Later in the piece:
Moughan was arrested and charged with causing death by dangerous driving, and later released under investigation.
But two months later, police found her slumped in another damaged car, heavily drunk.
The second incident took place on December 1, when a member of the public called police to report a woman who had ‘passed out’ in a Fiat Punto.
At the scene, Police found damage to the car ‘consistent with a road traffic accident’.
Moughan underwent a roadside breath test which showed she was well over three times the drink-drive limit.
She was arrested again and charged with driving without due care and attention, failing to provide a specimen for analysis, failing to stop following an accident and failing to report an accident.
She was given a community order and a two-year driving ban for those offences…
