Motorcycle thief jailed for three and a half years after killing woman

A motorcycle thief who crashed into and killed a woman whilst riding wrecklessly has been jailed for three and a half years. 

A 21-year-old man has been convicted and jailed for causing death by dangerous driving after he killed a woman walking her dog in Iver, Buckinghamshire. 

Billy Silcox pleaded guilty to the aforementioned charge at Reading Crown Court yesterday.  

Silcox, riding a Yamaha, struck 46-year-old Baljit Kaur on March 5th at 2:10 pm as she was walking her dog in Langley Park Road. She suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.  

A police investigation determined that Silcox was riding a stolen motorcycle at 87mph in a 40mph zone when the fatal collision occurred. To add to this he was also riding through a pedestrian area prior to hitting Baljit Kaur. 

He had no driving licence or insurance and the bike present at the collision was reported stolen from London.  

After pleading guilty, Silcox was sentenced to three years and six months imprisonment, disqualified from driving for five years nine months and will have to take an extended driving test.  

Investigating officer Sergeant Darren Brown of the Serious Collision Investigation Unit, told the Slough and South Buck Observer: “Firstly, I would like to send my sincere condolences to Ms Kaur’s family. Baljit was innocently walking her dog when she died following the dangerous actions of Silcox. He was riding a motorbike at more than double the speed limit when the collision happened.

“It has been established, if Silcox was travelling at the speed limit, Ms Kaur would have been able to safely cross the road and she would still be alive today.

“The sentence given to Silcox could never represent the loss to Ms Kaur’s family but we hope it provides a starting point for the family to begin the grieving process.

“Until yesterday, when he admitted the charge, Silcox has shown no remorse during the investigation.

“Our thoughts remain with Ms Kaur’s family at this tragic time.”

Well, the guys at school are right after all. They made me think otherwise but this part inspired me to excel and be like the writer in his logical way of thinking. https://www.maidserviceoforlando.com
