Man jailed for crash in Cranleigh which left two passengers seriously injured

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 4:25pm 25th February 2020.

A 23 year-old man has been jailed for twenty months after seriously injuring two passengers in a crash on the A281 in Cranleigh.

Michael Fisher of Strudwicks Field in Cranleigh was also sentenced to a thirty-four month driving disqualification after being found guilty of two offences of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Fisher was sentenced at Guildford Crown Court on Monday (24 February) and was additionally told he would have to re-take his driving test when his driving ban expires.

Surrey Police said he drove his Audi A4 at speeds of around 100mph on the A281 on Tuesday 13 February 2018.

Four people were in the car when it crashed into a field.

Both rear seat passengers were seriously injured and had to be cut out of the written-off car by fire crews.

The two men in the front of the car received minor injuries.

Both men who were seriously injured have since recovered, however one of the men still experiences pain associated with his injuries.

Investigating officer, PC John Ryan said:

“Thankfully Fisher’s passengers have recovered, this could have easily been a fatal collision.

"I’m pleased that we have secured this result for the injured parties and that Fisher will now face the serious consequences of his reckless actions that could have also seriously injured other road users."
