Re: Tehya Lee, a new driver who took her friend's car out to buy cigarettes before crashing into a petrol station and leaving an innocent man in hospital, has been sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court, Wales, UK. <br />
Lee was driving on the A48 near Cowbridge last year when she overtook another car before veering off the main road and into the Esso petrol station forecourt – smashing into a petrol pump and narrowly avoiding a man who was filling his car before speeding out the other side of the station.<br />
The force of the impact sent Clayton Borek flying back into his car leaving him with multiple injuries and covered in blood. <br />
The court was shown CCTV footage which showed the car Lee was driving hitting the petrol pump being used by Mr Borek, sending him flying into his car, and narrowly missing another man before continuing out the other end of the forecourt and coming to a stop across the road. Mr Brown said a slight raise in the entrance to the station had briefly caused the car to become airborne. <br />
Ms Lee was given an eight-month jail sentence suspended for 18 months and 120 hours of unpaid work. She was also disqualified from driving for two and a half years from the date of her interim disqualification on April 22 this year. She must also pay a £420 in prosecution costs and a £156 surcharge.
