Death crash driver receives ban

Crash at Croft Lincolnshire
Two women and a man died in the crash on the A52

A man has been banned from driving for two years after a crash which killed three people in Lincolnshire.

Andrzej Mucha, 45, of Roman Bank, Skegness, was driving a Sherpa van on the A52 at Croft Bank when it was in a head-on collision with a Rover 600.

He was acquitted on three counts of causing death by dangerous driving but found guilty on a lesser charge of driving without due care and attention.

Mucha, a Polish national, was also fined 2,000 at Lincoln Crown Court.

The court heard that Mucha was driving a minibus taking five colleagues from Skegness to work at a factory near Boston when the crash happened in November 2007.

The minibus was overtaking a car at Croft Bank on the A52, when it collided head on with another group of migrant workers driving in the opposite direction.
