Drunk driver killed BABY boy and one other, tells police ‘mistakes happen’


A drink-driver told police ‘sometimes mistakes happen’ after killing a baby and his aunt when he smashed into their car at 141mph moments after taking a photo of the speedometer. 


Darryl Anderson, 38, did not help mother Shalorna Warner frantically look for her baby son after eight-month-old Zackary Blades was flung 160ft from her car, out of his crushed car seat and on to the opposite carriageway of the A1.


The horrific crash between Chester-Le-Street and Durham at 3.15am on May 31 also killed Ms Warner’s 30-year-old sister Karlene, a flight attendant.


Anderson showed a shocking disregard for his actions, with a police bodycam capturing him saying: ‘I’ve drove into the back of another car [sic]. Sometimes mistakes happen, but I’m not a bad person.’ 


The killer driver, who was breathalysed and found to be three times over the limit, continued his sickeningly callous behaviour in hospital, where he joked with nurses and cracked jokes.

Anderson took a photograph on his phone of the dashboard of his Audi Q5 three seconds before impact, which showed he was driving at 141mph and the vehicle was flashing a red collision warning alert. 

However, Durham Crown Court heard he was so drunk and distracted that he didn’t even see the Peugeot 308 feet ahead of him being driven Ms Warner.
