15 yrs in jail for this car driver who intentionally banged into a biker
Dangerous driving and a could not care less attitude and this Texan now faces prison term of 15 years.
69 year old Texan, William Crum swerved and hit two motorcyclists in October 2015. Two years later he finds that his careless attitude and dangerous driving will now lead him behind bars as he has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
The video captured on a helmet cam shows how William Crum side swiped Eric Sanders and Debra Simpson, his pillion rider and his 38 year old girlfriend.
As Sanders tries to overtake Crum’s car which was moving at a slow pace on the double yellow lines, Crum suddenly side swipes him causing both rider and pillion rider to fall. Even as he was questioned after the crash, Crum was heard saying ‘I don’t care’.
Crum has been in prison since the incident on October 19, 2015. On Thursday he was sentenced to a total of 15 years after the court ruled against his favor. He has been convicted on two counts of aggravated assault with deadly weapon.
Initially Crum blamed the crash on a wasp sting but then changed his statement to having lost control over the car following a spider bite. Crum also blamed Sanders of breaking the law and overtaking his vehicle on the double yellow lines. Whatever the cause of the crash and wherever the fault, the result is that this 69 year old man will now spend the next 15 years in prison, only to come out a free man at the age of 84.
