Dangerous driver jailed for Aylesbury horror crash injuries
A dangerous driver who injured multiple people in a terrifying high-speed crash in Bucks has been jailed.
Geoffrey Hill, 48, has been locked up for two years and three months after he pleaded guilty to two charges of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.
On June 18, 2020, at around 5.30pm, Hill was driving a BMW 330D at over 80mph out of Aylesbury and towards Aston Clinton, more than doubling the 40mph speed limit.
Hill, of St Albans Road in Hemel Hempstead, proceeded to overtake another vehicle, and then crashed into a black Volvo, which was being driven by a 60-year-old woman.

The Volvo driver broke her ankle in the head-on collision, while her passenger, a 22-year-old woman, suffered a fractured back.
The passenger in Hill's car sustained two broken legs in the smash, while Hill himself only suffered minor injuries.
A third charge of causing serious injury by dangerous driving was ordered to lie on the file.
On top of his prison term, Hill has also been banned from driving for four years and one month.
Investigating officer PC Phil Duthie, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “This is an example of the dangers of driving at excess speed. Hill was travelling at well over twice the limit for the road. The speed he was driving his vehicle was completely unacceptable.
“Three people suffered serious injuries as a result of Hill’s dangerous driving, and it was only a matter of fortune that nobody was killed as a result of his actions.
“The driver of the Volvo could have not expected to be confronted with a vehicle driving at such speeds in this area, and had no time whatsoever to react.
“I would like to thank the members of the public who immediately came to the aid of the victims of this collision, and also the swift response from South Central Ambulance Service.
“Hill will now have to serve a prison sentence as a result of this appalling driving and when he is released, he will be disqualified from driving and will need to take an extended test in order to regain his licence.
“Thames Valley Police will never tolerate driving of this nature and will always look to bring offenders to justice.”
