Nigerian Doctor,47 who killed his daughter while trying to get her to her maths class is sentenced to 4years in prison .



A doctor who killed his nine-year-old daughter in a horror high-speed crash which 'sounded like a bomb going off' was today jailed for four years.
Chizoro Edohasim, 47, was travelling at 60mph as he desperately tried to get the young girl and her sister to a maths lesson on time.
A court heard that he was rushing so quickly to get Olivia and her sister Eva, 11, to a tutor his Toyota Auris went through a red light at full throttle and ploughed into a wall. 
Olivia - who was sitting in the back seat with her seatbelt on - suffered fatal back injuries in the impact, which was described by one witness as 'like a bomb going off'.
A witness also described Dr Edohasim, from Timperley, near Altrincham, Greater Manchester, was driving 'like a lunatic' on May 7, 2016. 
He was convicted of causing death by dangerous driving and causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
The injuries he suffered in the incident left him in a wheelchair and he was today jailed for four years and was disqualified from driving for five years.

Minshull Street Crown Court heard from witnesses who said that his driving was irresponsible and dangerous after he was seen driving his car at high speed overtaking other vehicles and causing oncoming traffic to take evasive action.
Edohasim denied the charge and said that his brakes had failed during the incident in May 2016. 
The car was examined by experts and data downloaded revealed that the car was at 100 per cent acceleration and the brakes were off at the time of the collision. 
The trial had heard that he overtook a car on the wrong side of the road, with the other driver forced to slam on his brakes. 

It was not suggested that was deliberate. I find that you intended to press the brake pedal but pressed the accelerator in error.
'You reacted to your mistake by pressing the pedal harder and keeping your foot pressed down. Your car shot through the junction and into a wall.
'Your daughter Olivia, nine, was killed and your daughter Eva, 11, sustained serious injuries for which she needed surgery and spent up to one month in hospital.'
The judge added: 'There is a grave aggravating feature that you also caused serious injury to your older daughter, which means both sentences will be higher to reflect.
'There are two powerful factors in mitigation. One is the injuries to yourself, the second is the fact you are a man of exemplary good character.
'Witnesses have spoken about you in glowing terms. I accept that any conviction will have a significant impact on your career. 
'Finally, and most importantly in mitigation, there is the factor that the deceased was one of your children.
'I accept that you were a loving father and this will make a significant difference to your sentence.
said the judge
