A 29 YEAR OLD man has been jailed for six years after he pleaded guilty at Woodford Crown Court to causing the death of a licensed minicab driver.
The North London court heard that Massimo Sassu’s black BMW 3 Series collided with a green Ford Galaxy, driven by Ahmet Vural (54), in Green Lanes, Winchmore Hill.
Mr Vural suffered serious head and chest injuries and declared dead at the scene of the accident. A 40 year old passenger in the private hire vehicle suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital and later discharged.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police Chadwell Heath Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “Sassu had overtaken a bus adjacent to two ‘keep left’ bollards and hit the oncoming private hire vehicle head on.”
