POLICE have described a crash which killed a pedestrian near a Domino’s store in Abingdon as ‘a horrific incident’.

Ryan Owen-Brewerton, 20, was sentenced to seven years’ imprisonment at Oxford Crown Court earlier today, following the death of Kacper Grezeszek.

Investigating officer, PC Mark Dunne, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “I am satisfied that Owen-Brewerton pleaded guilty to these offences and has now been sentenced.

“Shortly before the collision, CCTV captured Owen-Brewerton driving over the speed limit and making a number of dangerous overtakes on the road. His speed immediately prior to the incident was measured at 78mph.

“This was a horrific incident that once again highlights the dangers of drink driving and speeding.

“We work tirelessly to bring to justice those who think it is acceptable to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol and drive in excess of the speed limit, putting the lives of other road users in danger.

“Even the smallest amount of alcohol can impair your ability to drive – it’s not worth the risk.

“My thoughts remain with the family of Kacper Grezeszek and hopefully the sentencing today can bring some form of closure for them.”
