Teen whose 17-year-old girlfriend died in crash convicted of separate driving offences
A teenager who was injured in a crash in which killed his girlfriend has been handed a suspended sentence on unrelated driving matters.
Logan Addison, aged 18, was in the car with 17-year-old Lily-May Vaughan when their Volkswagen Golf was in a collision with and Audi A3 on February 4 on the A53 in Shawbury. He was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.
Since that incident, Addison has been convicted of a string of motoring offences unrelated to that crash, as well as possession of a bladed article in a public place.
Back in July, Addison was sentenced after he drove a Mazda MX5 without due care and attention at Harlescott park and ride car park in Shrewsbury on March 26.
A few days after that offence, on April 1, he was stopped on the A518 in Newport. He was found to be in possession of a Milwaukee flip lock knife, and his Mazda was inspected. It was found to have a loose battery which could have caused a fire, as well as unsafe brakes. His car was uninsured on both occasions.
Addison was handed six penalty points, resulting in an immediate six-month road ban due to him having passed his test less than two years ago. He was also handed a two-year community order including a mental health treatment programme, 100 hours of unpaid work and 20 rehabilitation activity days.
However, he did not learn his lesson, and was this week convicted of driving while disqualified after being caught behind the wheel of a Rover Metro in Wingfield Gardens, Ditherington, Shrewsbury on August 4.
