Driver jailed after Oxfordshire man dies in crash
A man who caused a crash that killed an Oxfordshire man, then drove from the scene and later lied to police, has begun a five-year jail term.
Sam Edwards, 26, from Marsh, caused 18-year-old Greg Stiles, from Thame, to swerve into another vehicle on the A4129 in Kingsey in May last year.
Mr Stiles' girlfriend Abigail Dowdy, 17, was critically injured.
Edwards was sentenced at Reading Crown Court on Thursday after being convicted of causing death by dangerous driving.
He was also banned from driving for eight years.
Pc Phil Hanham, of Thames Valley Police, said officers had used CCTV footage and mobile phone records to find Edwards.
"Eventually he had to hold his hands up and say he was the driver, and he did do the overtake that caused Greg Stiles' death," he added.
