Jail for drug-driver after collision with tractor

Meanwhile, across the waters in the UK, A drug motorist, who drove at 120mph, raced with another vehicle, and collided with a tractor, has been jailed.

Police were alerted after a black BMW 330 crashed into a tractor and trailer on The Broyle (B2192) last May.

The 21-year-old appeared before Lewes Crown Court earlier this week in relation to the incident, which occurred shortly before 6 pm on May 18th, 2021.

The court heard the tractor had been turning left into Half Mile Drove when the collision occurred, and the impact caused it to overturn.

Its driver – a 41-year-old man from Hailsham – suffered serious facial injuries and temporary sight loss. He was taken to hospital and later discharged.

A blood sample was taken, which showed Dennis had at least 3mcg of cannabis per litre of blood in his system; the legal limit is 2mcg.

He was subsequently summoned to court to face charges of causing serious injury by dangerous driving, and driving under the influence of drugs.
