Taxi driver boasted to his passengers ‘about being pulled over for speeding’ – then KILLED 16 minutes later

39

A speeding taxi driver was let off with a warning by police over his driving, then killed a pedestrian just 16 minutes.

What Happened?

Shakoor Ahmed, 46, crashed into 32-year-old landscape gardener Dan Beames. Prior to the crash, two police officers pulled him in and gave him a formal warning for speeding.

‘Just don’t do it again. I don’t want you or anyone else to get hit or hurt,’ police warned him.

How the Accident Happened

Driving at 100mph along a bypass between the two locations, the court heard he was still doing 53mph on a 40mph road in the town when he hit Mr Beames, who was crossing the road with a newly purchased box of beer under his arm to enjoy with friends.

Ahmed could not avoid him and the pedestrian suffered catastrophic brain injuries.

Court Ruling

He has since been jailed for six years on Thursday.

The officers had charitably decided not to charge him with the offence because of the impact a conviction might have on his sixteen-year taxi driving career.
