/ Two people sentenced for hit and run in Reddish

Two people have today been sentenced after a teenager was left for dead following a hit and run in Reddish.

Amanda Plant (11/01/1986) of no fixed address has today Friday 16 November 2012 been sentenced at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court to 12 months imprisonment.

She pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to dangerous driving, failing to stop at the scene of a collision and perverting the course of justice.

Bradley Ian Daly (13/01/1984), of no fixed address has today Friday 16 November 2012 at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court to three years imprisonment.

He was found guilty of Perverting the Course of Justice following a three day trial in October.

At about 9pm on Monday 12 March 2012, a 17-year-old girl was involved in a collision with a silver Vauxhall Astra at a pedestrian crossing on Reddish Road.

A blue coloured Volkswagen was seen to be driving in tandem with the Astra moments before the collision. Both cars drove off from the scene.

The girl - who was left injured in the road - was taken to hospital for treatment to her injuries. She suffered serious injuries, but has since made a full recovery.

Police Sergeant Lee Westhead from GMP’s Serious Collision Investigation Unit, said: “Amanda Plant drove dangerously with no regard for other road users, she collided with a teenage girl and drove off without stopping.

“Plant and Daly who was the passenger in her car both took steps to conceal their involvement in the collision and destroy as much evidence as possible.

“Daly has never shown any remorse for his callous and selfish actions and maintained his charade throughout.

“I hope that our victim gets some satisfaction from today’s sentences and would like to thank her and her family for their patience.
“If people choose to drive dangerously on the roads of Greater Manchester, we will pursue them tirelessly and take them off our roads".
