A High Wycombe man has been sentenced to prison after exceeding the DUI limit and causing a crash in his M40.
Chiltern Avenue’s Yasar Razwan, 28, was convicted Tuesday (24/1) by Oxford Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified and driving over the alcohol limit. .
He was sentenced to 16 weeks’ imprisonment, five years’ driving disqualification, a £85 fine and £154 in costs.
At about 5:25 pm on 23rd January, Razwan was traveling south on the M40 between junctions 9 and 8 in Oxfordshire.
Under the influence of alcohol, his Seat Leon collided with two other vehicles in the middle and outer lanes of the highway, causing his car to roll across all three lanes and a hard shoulder onto the roof. fell into a ditch.
Emergency services attended and removed Razwan from the vehicle. He failed a street breath test and was arrested.
He was taken into custody, appeared in court the next day, and was found guilty.
Road Police Unit Investigator Sergeant James Matthews said:
“Miraculously, he and no one else was hurt in the crash, but that could have been a whole different story.
“Razwan has entered his disqualification period in just a few weeks in complete disregard for the court and its authority.
“He also demonstrated a complete lack of concern for the safety of the public and himself by driving on the highway at more than 1.5 times the legal limit.
“Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is one of the top four causes of serious and fatal crashes in the UK each year. I hope that.”
