Truck driver jailed for 5 years

Dorel Galan caused a 6 vehicle collision. He was driving a 32 ton HGV. 18 minutes prior to the crash he made a 9 minute video call via Facebook. Evidence also showed that he was making a phone call immediately prior to the crash.

Much like the Kroker case he did not see queuing traffic and ploughed into the back of it. In the ensuing chaos his actions killed Mr Ian Newall.

In addition to this he was driving over his hours and fatigued.
