A woman involved in a collision in which a young Polish worker died has pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving.
Clare Butler, 36, of Granary Road, Newmarket, was given a 12-month community order, 100 hours unpaid work and a 12-month driving ban at Cambridge Crown Court yesterday.
Butler was driving her Ford Focus when it was in collision with an Audi 80 and a JCB on the B1061 Bradley Road, Burrough Green on March 16 last year.
Rear seat passenger of the Audi, 23-year-old Sebestian Andrzej Chlebosz, of Aureole Walk, Newmarket, suffered fatal injuries as a result of the collision.
Sebestian’s employer, Martin Hughes of Maze Rattan in Haverhill, said all three people in the Audi had worked in his company’s warehouse. Sebestian had worked at Maze Rattan for four years.
“You would never wish to meet a better guy,” Mr Hughes said at the time. “He always had a smile on his face there was nothing he wouldn’t do. I’m just totally gutted.
“He was a brilliant person to have around. He was a credit to any business.”
As news reached the warehouse, Mr Hughes decided to close his business for the day to allow Sebastian’s colleagues to come to terms with his death.
Mr Hughes, who visited the site of the collision himself, said the scene was horrific.
