MOHAMMED ABBAS, 27, of Richmond Road in Huddersfield area was sentenced jail for three years for causing a woman’s death by dangerous driving.

Isma Nawaz was 38 when she died following a collision in Apperley Bridge on 23 June 2020.

The parents of Nawaz of Bradford paid tribute to their daughter after the man responsible for causing her death pleaded guilty at Bradford Crown Court. Apart from the jail sentence, Abbas has been banned from driving for five and a half years.

Detective Sergeant Paul Lightowler, who led the investigation into the crash, said: “This case should serve as a reminder to all about the devastating consequences of driving dangerously on our roads.

“No sentence can ever compensate for the grief and upset experienced by family and friends at the sudden, needless and tragic loss of Mrs Nawaz and our sympathies remain with them at this sad time.”
