A callous hit-and-run driver told an onlooker: ‘b…locks to her we’ve got to go’ as he was urged to help a young woman left badly injured after a high speed 4.30am road smash.

Businessman Luke Rothwell, 25, from Stockport escaped uninjured after crashing a BMW over-crammed with six people into a wall after drinking alcohol and snorting cocaine in the hours before the crash.

He ignored pleas to tend to front-seat passenger Niamh Gara, 20, who suffered a fractured elbow and facial injuries.

Rothwell fled the scene on foot as another seriously injured woman from the car was carried from the wreckage by a friend.    

Niamh and Molly Ferncombe, also 20 who had been out with Rothwell at a casino in Didsbury, Greater Manchester were later taken to hospital by ambulance.

Niamh’s elbow was placed in a cast but Molly was left scarred for life after suffering a laceration to her forehead.

She also sustained a spinal wedge fracture which hospitalised her for a month.

The incident occurred on February 28, last year, after a night of partying in Manchester city centre and a visit to a casino in Didsbury. 

Rothwell, gave himself up and admitted to drinking alcohol and snorting cocaine in but tested under the drink drive and drug limit.

At Minshull Street Crown Court, Manchester, Luke was jailed for 27 months for causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

Miss Alexandra Sutton prosecuting said: ‘By the early hours of the morning, he had five passengers in the car, three females and two males. Niamh was in the front passenger seat and Molly was one of those in the rear seat.

A passenger in a taxi saw a black BMW overtake it going onto the opposite side of the road and through the red traffic light at approximately 80mph and described it as ‘absolutely tanking it’. 

A short time later they saw the BMW had crashed into a wall.

Sutton continued: ‘The passenger got out of the taxi and saw two males with Molly who had blood all over her face and looking to leave the scene. He heard one of them say ‘we’ve got to go, get out of here’. 

When the taxi passenger pointed to Niamh who was on the floor injured the defendant replied ‘b…locks to her, we’ve got to go, call her an ambulance’.

Rothwell, gave himself up and admitted to drinking alcohol and snorting cocaine in but tested under the drink drive and drug limit.

Sentencing Rothwell, Judge Tina Landale told him: ‘Having consumed cocaine earlier in the day and then alcohol, you drove your friends late at night. You were not over the limit for either alcohol or drugs, but you were driving a high-powered BMW that was unfamiliar to you.

‘That car was overcrowded. There were five passengers, and you knew at least one was unrestrained with a seat belt. You drove at high speeds, increased your speed and drove extremely fast through a red light and went the wrong side of the carriageway. Ultimately, you crashed into a wall.

‘Two women were seriously injured yet your only concern, despite the injuries of your friends, was for yourself.’

Rothwell was also banned from driving for 40 months which will start when he is freed from jail.
