Rugby man jailed for motoring offences

A Rugby man has been jailed after being found guilty of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

John Marshall

John Marshall, 29,  of Whitefriars Drive, Cawston appeared before Warwick Crown Court on Friday (23 March) where he was sentenced to eight months in prison.

He was also sentenced for driving a motor vehicle with a proportion of a controlled drug above the specified limit and was banned from driving for five years.

It comes after a 42-year-old woman was knocked off her bike while crossing a pedestrian crossing on Lawford Road in Rugby on 29 June, 2016.

She suffered serious injuries to her right leg and left arm, which required hospital treatment.

PC Mark Russell, of Warwickshire OPU, said: "Our priority to bring offenders to justice where possible and protect our communities from harm

"It is clearly in the public interest to remove such drivers from the road and we will continue to do all we can to keep the roads safe."
