THE driver who ran down and killed Zak Carr was jailed for five years at Norwich Crown Court today (Monday).
Donald Pearce, 49 drove into the back of Carr on the A11 near Wymondham after having insufficient sleep following an overnight flight to Stansted.
Carr (pictured), a prolific competition record breaker who was set to compete as tandem pilot in the 2008 Beijing Paralympics, was riding to work in Norwich when he was fatally injured on October 17, 2005.
Sentencing Pearce, Judge Simon Barnes said: ?At the point of collision, Mr Carr was cycling in a layby when hit by your car. No sentence I impose is adequate enough for those who have lost Mr Carr. This will serve as a warning to others. It is dangerous for those who travel home from holiday or from a business trip to get in a car and drive home without adequate sleep.?
