A Porsche salesman, who left two teenage girls with life-changing injuries after smashing into their car, has been sent to jail.

Adam Hill (35) of Grimsby Road, Caistor, was sentenced to 15 months in prison after being found guilty of two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

He appeared for sentencing at Lincoln Crown Court this morning (Monday).

Hill did not saying anything in court but his partner wept as he was handcuffed and led away by a prison officer.

Sentencing Hill, Judge John Pini said: “I found very little remorse but rather a desire to avoid conviction.”

The court had been told at a previous hearing that at the time of the crash in 2013, Hill was ‘distracted’ and ‘stressed’ after losing his job at a Sheffield-based Porsche dealership following allegations of theft.

He was driving a £32,000 Audi A6 car on the wrong side of the A46 near Market Rasen when he hit a Ford Fiesta carrying Beth Tyson and Kate Hunter who were both aged 18.

Both girls suffered horrific injuries and say their lives will never by the same again.

Miss Tyson spent 35 hours in surgery and had to give up her dream of becoming a paramedic.

Miss Hunter, a talented horse rider, had her Olympic dreams wrecked.

The court was also told that Hill has been on a fast track programme and was the country’s youngest Porsche salesman.
