Delivery driver jailed following death of motorcyclist
A delivery driver has been jailed after killing a motorcyclist in Pelsall last year.
Myles Byrne, aged 49 of Tame Close in Tamworth, collided with Lee Marlow’s scooter at the junction of Hall Lane and Vicarage Road in Pelsall on Saturday 17 September last year.
Lee Marlow, aged 34 from Walsall, sadly died from his injuries.
He was jailed for three and a half years yesterday (Tuesday 26 September) at Wolverhampton Crown Court for causing death by dangerous driving.
PC Karl Davies, from the force’s Collision Investigation Unit, said: "An analysis and breakdown of CCTV from the delivery van showed that Myles Byrne had put his interior light on and read his delivery notes moments before he indicated to turn right. He drove into the path of Lee, who had right of way.
“A witness also stated that she had seen the van driving at speed shortly before the collision.
“A young man has sadly lost his life and I hope that the conviction and sentencing offers some comfort to his family and friends."
