Police have caught Logan Addison committing a number of driving offences

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.
