Jailed after test drive crash killed prospective buyer

A private seller caused the death of a prospective buyer of his car during a test drive.

Now Nathan Morris has been jailed for four years after being found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.

Morris, 23, a trainee mechanic of Tenby in Pembrokeshire, crashed into a parked SUV while demonstrating the Peugeot hatchback to Gavin Collier.

The court heard he had been speeding at the time when he lost control, and was trying to sell the car with a faulty shock absorber which he had been previously warned about in an MoT test.

Collier was killed instantly.
