A man from Chester has been given a suspended prison sentence after being found guilty in relation to a fatal collision that occurred in Guilden Sutton in June 2013.

Richard Bromley, 23, of Daniell Way, Great Boughton, was found guilty of death by careless driving on 30th May 2016, following a retrial at Warrington Crown Court.

At his sentencing on Tuesday 28th June, Bromley was handed a 15 month prison sentence, suspended for two years, and ordered to complete 180 hours community service and a 20 days rehabilitation course. In addition Bromley was also disqualified from driving for three years and will have to complete an extended driving test.

During Bromley’s trial the jury heard how Bromley was driving his Silver Vauxhall Corsa along School Lane, Guilden Sutton, near Chester, at around 9.30pm on Monday 24 June 2013, when an argument broke out between him and his 19-year-old girlfriend, Claudia Ella Williams.

As the pair continued to argue Bromley lost control of the vehicle and collided with a tree close to the junction of Belle Vue Lane. The impact of the collision left Claudia with serious injuries, which sadly proved fatal.

At the time of the collision Bromley was over the drink drive limit, with a reading of 111mg per 100ml, and also had traces of the of Boldenone (Anabolic steroids) in his blood.
