A man has been jailed for causing the death of a 25-year-old woman after driving dangerously in Sale
Glenn Wall aged 35 from Altrincham was sentenced today January 22 at Manchester Crown Square to two years in prison, he is also banned from driving for two years and eleven months.
At around 6.10pm on June 20th 2016, Helena was crossing Manchester Road at the junction with Park Road and Woodcote Road when she was hit by Glenn Wall’s Vauxhall Astra.
The impact of the collision threw Helena 10ft into the air, she was taken to hospital where she sadly died the following day.
Wall remained at the scene and was later summoned to court.
Police Constable Paul Haiwood of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “Wall’s dangerous actions that evening took the life of a woman who had her whole life ahead of her, robbing those close to her of a much-loved daughter, sister and friend.
“Helena’s death left her family absolutely devastated and no prison sentence can bring her back, but it will bring them some sense of justice to see the man responsible jailed.
“Being in control of a car is no small responsibility of which the consequences can be heat breaking, as is sadly the case here.”
