A woman who caused a fatal crash in West Drayton while suffering an epileptic fit has been convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.
Sonya Pannu, 32, of North Park, Iver, Buckinghamshire, had been told not to drive on medical grounds but on April 10 2014 sped across a roundabout and smashed into three cars.
She was convicted at Hove Crown Court for causing the death of 30-year-old Irene Valverde-Martinez who was in one of the cars.
She was also found guilty of causing serious injury to a 30-year-old man by dangerous driving.
A jury returned the guilty verdict on Wednesday (March 16) following a trial.
Tragic crash on journey home from Hounslow
Pannu was driving her Land Rover Discovery along Sipson Lane towards Sipson Road, West Drayton, at around 4pm on that Thursday afternoon two years ago.
She had finished work in Hounslow as director of a children's nursery and was driving home to Iver.
As she approached the roundabout, she accelerated and crossed onto the wrong side of the road.
At the time, the victim Irene and her husband were travelling home to Hayes in her Vauxhall Astra. Irene was in the passenger seat and a male friend, aged 30, was in the back.
As they turned left into Sipson Lane, Pannu hit the front passenger side of the Astra, which spun back across Sipson Road and into a brick wall.
Pannu, a mother of five, continued straight across the roundabout and collided with a Volkswagen Golf, causing it to spin round and hit a garden wall in Sipson Road.
The Land Rover continued straight into the drive of a property in Sipson Road, hitting a stationary Ford Transit and pushing it forward into the closed garage doors. The Land Rover also hit railings and trees before coming to a halt.
Irene was treated at the scene before being taken to St Mary's Hospital, where she died that night from multiple injuries.
Her friend who was in the back of the car suffered serious injuries to his lungs, bowel and spleen. He was at St Mary's Hospital for many weeks and is now recovering slowly following surgery.
Actions have 'devastated family'
Sergeant Jane Mallett, from the Met's Road Death Investigation Unit, said: "Pannu's actions that day devastated Irene's family - her husband has been left without his wife and their friend suffered very serious injuries from which he is still recovering.
"Pannu suffered an epileptic fit at the wheel having been told by a neurological consultant not to drive just one week before the collision, setting in motion a chain of events that had tragic consequences.
"It is only right she has been forced to face up to her actions in court and I am pleased the jury have convicted her today."
There were no other serious injuries during the incident and following an investigation, Pannu was summonsed to appear at court.
Pannu denied both the charges against her at Isleworth Crown Court on June 26.
She will be sentenced on Thursday (March 17).
