Nurse drove her car into a motorcyclist  after he told her not to use her phone while driving.

Leah Keyworth, 42 was driving near her home with her young daughter in the back seat when a motorcyclist verbally remonstrated with her for using her phone behind the wheel.

Ms Keyworth, got annoyed and she drove her car into the back of the motorcycle, throwing him off the road.

Both the helmet and the motorbike were written off during the incident, while Ms Keyworth drove away from the scene without looking back.

Despite pleading guilty to driving without due care and attention, assault, criminal damage and failing to stop after an accident and failing to report an accident, she managed to avoid jail at the hearing in Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court, and was given a 12 week prison sentence, suspended for one year.

She was also ordered to pay £1,290 ( about 400,00 Naira) in fines and compensation to the victim.

However Robert Travis, who was defending Ms Keyworth, said the man on the motorbike ‘must have said something significant for her to respond in this way’.
