A 26 year-old man from Tadworth has been jailed for three and a half years after crashing his car into a motorbike while on cocaine and leaving a teenage girl in “constant pain”.

Freddy Webb, of Thurnham Way, pleaded guilty at Guildford Crown Court last week to a string of offences, including failing to stop following an injury collision.

Webb was arrested by Thames Valley Police on October 24, after he failed to attend Guildford Crown Court on November 6, 2017 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The 26-year old was driving a silver Volkswagen Golf in May 2017, when he crashed into a motorbike outside the Texaco petrol station in Tadworth at around 9pm.

The crash left a teenage girl with life-changing injuries including a fractured pelvis, and serious deep lacerations to her leg which has left in her constant pain.

Webb failed to stop at the scene, and his victim was taken to St George’s Hospital with serious injuries.

The Judge said the offence was aggravated by Webb’s behaviour and consumption of alcohol and drugs and deserved the application of the maximum sentence for Webb’s guilty plea.

Sergeant Geoff Longstaff from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Webb’s dangerous and erratic driving coupled with his consumption of alcohol and cocaine led to the collision and resulted in a young woman being left with life-changing injuries.

“Not only did he fail to stop at the time, but he then went on the run after being charged. He has finally been brought before the court and been sent to prison for three and a half years.

“The fact that he has finally been brought to justice for what he did will hopefully allow the victim to start to rebuild her life and give her some closure.”

Webb was also disqualified from driving for five years and nine months.
