Unlicensed Nigerian driver Adebowale Adeyemi who caused death of pedestrian, jailed in the UK ›

An unlicensed Nigerian driver who drove carelessly with no insurance has been jailed following the death of a pedestrian in Barking.

Adebowale Adeyemi, 38 of Cowbridge Lane, Barking was sentenced on Monday, 6 June at Snaresbrook Crown Court to three years and seven months' imprisonment after pleading guilty to causing death by careless driving; causing death whilst not driving a vehicle in accordance with a licence; and causing death whilst driving uninsured. But isn't three years too steep?
Police were called by the London Ambulance Service to Longbridge Road, junction with Wilmington Road, Barking, at 20:05hrs on Sunday, 1 February 2015 following reports of a road traffic collision.

Officers attended and found a female pedestrian suffering serious injuries.
The woman, Cissy Howlett, 54, from Barking was taken to an east London hospital in a critical condition. She died a short while later at 21:21hrs.

A post-mortem examination took place on Wednesday, 4 February at Queens Hospital Mortuary and cause of death was given as multiple injuries.
Officers established that a silver Vauxhall Meriva, which Adeyemi was driving, collided with a central traffic island which caused Cissy to react and fall in to the path of another vehicle.

Adeyemi, who did not stop at the scene, was arrested on Wednesday, 4 Februaryand subsequently charged on Wednesday, 14 October, 2015.

Detective Constable Alan Curtis said:"This is an extremely tragic case. Cissy and her husband were on a night out when the actions of Adeyemi caused her death.
"Adeyemi should not have been driving that night; he was a provisional licence holder and was not being supervised. In addition to this, his vision was severely impaired and he later failed an eyesight test to meet the minimum standard for driving."
