Sandwich-eating driver sentenced for careless driving death

A motorist who knocked down and killed a cyclist while eating a sandwich at the wheel has been sentenced for causing death by careless driving.

Paul Brown, 30, hit off-duty firefighter Joseph Wilkins on a country road near Abingdon in May 2012.

The lock keeper, of Witney, must carry out 240 hours of unpaid work and was disqualified from driving for a year.

He admitted the charge and was cleared of causing death by dangerous driving at a trial at Oxford Crown Court.
