An 18-year-old from Essex was banned from driving and given a two-year community order for causing the death of a moped rider last year.
Marc Hensby, of Spring Close, Little Baddow, appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court today where judges sentenced him over the death of moped rider David Crow.
The teenager was driving his Vauxhall Corsa in the middle lane of the A138’s Colchester-bound carriageway at Springfield on June 26 last year when he crashed into the back of Mr Crow’s moped.
The 59-year-old victim, from Ingatestone, was thrown from his Yamaha by the impact and died at the scene.
Hensby’s car, which he had only owned for two days, crashed into the outside lane barrier before rebounding back onto the carriageway and into the central reservation.
