A man faces years in jail after he admitted causing motorway pile up that left a man dead.
Pique Rumah of Lawrence Avenue, Wembley, pleaded guilty to death by careless driving in Harrow Crown Court today. The 41-year-old was driving along the North Circular Road on January 16 when the collision occurred.
Rumah was driving a hired Vauxhall car when it struck a Peugeot from behind, which led to a fatal smash. The Peugeot was spun across into the outside lane where it struck a lorry being driven by Stephen Moore.
The lorry hit the central reserve and rebounded across all three lanes of the westbound carriage way before crashing into the wall of a vet's surgery. Mr Moore was declared dead at the scene. Debris from the crash also hit a pedestrian who suffered serious injuries.
After the crash Rumah sped off and was only caught after another motorist caught up with him at the traffic lights and took down his number plate. His address was traced through the hire company.
Rumah pleaded not guilty to death by dangerous driving and is due to be sentenced on November 14.
