The man driving the car which crashed and killed mum Faye Norris, in Harrow, last year has been jailed.
Carl Morris, 32, of Priest Park Avenue, Harrow, pleaded guilty to causing the death of his 31-year-old girlfriend by dangerous driving, and was sentenced to five years and eight months imprisonment at Harrow Crown Court on Friday (April 10).
Morris was disqualified from driving at the time of the accident.
Following her death, there was an out-pouring of grief on Facebook, with tributes paid to Ms Norris, who had a nine-year-old son, Harley.
The court was told Morris was driving between 60mph and 65mph when the tragedy occurred, despite the road having a 30mph speed limit.
As well as pleading guilty to death by dangerous driving, Morris also accepted charges of causing death whilst disqualified from driving, causing death whilst unlicensed, causing death whilst uninsured and breaching the terms of a suspended sentence order.
He was also disqualified from driving for 10 years.
Detective Sergeant Stephen Pidgeon, from the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said afterwards: “Morris’s reckless and dangerous driving has cost the life of an innocent woman.
“The devastating impact Morris’s actions have had on Faye’s friends, family and especially her nine-year-old child are difficult to imagine.
“But this is a stark reminder of the consequences that driving at excessive speed can have.”
