Chizoro Edohasim aged 47 from Timperley was given 4 years in prison today Jan 26th after being found guilty of causing his daughter’s death by dangerous driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving which occurred on May 7th 2016 at 10.50am.
Edohasim was also disqualified from driving for 5-years.
The car Edhoasim was driving was speeding east bound on Stamford Brook Road towards Manchester Road A56 in Timperley, Olivia was a passenger with her sister, sadly Olivia died at the scene and her sister ended up in hospital fighting for her life.
The courts heard from witnesses who said that Edohasim’s driving was responsible and dangerous after he was seen driving his car at high-speed overtaking other vehicles and causing oncoming traffic to take evasive action.
Edhoasim pleaded guilty, saying that his brakes failed.
The car was examined by experts and data downloaded revealed that the car was at 100% acceleration and the brakes were off at the time of the collision.
A jury found Edhohasim guilty last month at Minshull Street Crown Court after hearing all the evidence including damming CCTV footage.
Sergeant Brian Orr of GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This was a very tragic case, this family have been ripped apart by the stupidity of their father and this little girl has lost her life due to his dangerous driving.
“He will have to live with that guilt for the rest of his life, knowing that he killed his own daughter, there really are no winners in this case.
“Prison is the lesser of the punishments that Edohasim will suffer, this tragic incident shows that we will always bring those who gamble with people’s lives by dangerous driving to justice.”
