A DRIVER has been found guilty of causing the death of a Wembley law student who was killed when his recovery vehicle ploughed into the back of her broken down car.
Kajal Pabari, 21, of Saunderton Road, Sudbury, was sitting in her maroon Vauxhall Corsa on the A40 when the breakdown truck smashed into the back of her car in June last year.
The stretch of road in Hillingdon does not have a hard shoulder preventing Miss Pabari from pulling over. When the vehicle crashed into the back of her car she was sent flying forwards into the windscreen causing fatal head injuries.
Harvinder Singh Saran, 32, of Water Beach Road, Slough, appeared at Isleworth Crown Court last week, charged with causing death by careless driving.
The police said the jury was told how he should have seen Kajal's broken down car from 10 seconds away, giving him ample time to avoid the accident.
Kajal's devastated family spoke to the Observer at the time of her death and appealed for witnesses to come forward.
Since her death tributes have flooded social networking site, Facebook, by school and university friends heartbroken at the popular student's death.
Jignesh Pabari, her younger brother, has set up an online tribute page to the former John Kelly Girls' Technology College pupil, and said: "Kajal was an angel, she tried her best at everything, she wanted the best for everyone. She had so many dreams and most of them were for the family.
"She believed nothing is impossible, the harder you work some day it will pay off. Sadly her dream's will still be dreams."
Her family have previously launched calls for a hard shoulder to be created on the stretch of road where Miss Pabari died which is near to where an elderly couple Krikor Tidanian, 80, and his wife Aprine, 76, from Neasden were killed in similar circumstances on the A40 earlier this year.
Saran will be sentenced at Isleworth Crown Court on August 6.
