Re: A driver who collided with an oncoming vehicle, killing one of his passengers, has been sentenced at Cardiff Crown Court.<br />
Lee Hillier, 30, was driving a Seat Leon on the A469 near Hengoed when he lost control of the vehicle and hit the kerb before crossing to the opposite carriageway, striking an oncoming VW van.<br />
One of the rear seat passengers, Jason Clarke, died as a result of the collision while two other passengers, Carley Appleton and Granville Vincent, were seriously injured.<br />
Hillier provided a blood sample to the police which was analysed and found to contain alcohol at just over twice the legal limit.<br />
Jamie Dewar of the CPS said: “Lee Hillier ignored pleas from his passengers to slow down. <br />
“The collision which followed had dreadful consequences.<br />
“Our thoughts continue to be with the family and friends of Jason regarding their terrible loss, and we wish Carley and Granville a quick recovery.”
