Police hunt ex-bus driver who killed man in car crash after taking cocaine

UK

Police are searching for an ex-bus driver who killed a man in a high-speed car crash after taking cocaine.

Gerald Cotter was driving his Vauxhall Meriva at more than 50mph in a 30mph zone when he hit Kieron Fevrier near London‘s Olympic Park in November 2016.

The 23-year-old victim was a motorcycle display team instructor.

Cotter was sentenced to seven years in jail in March 2017 – six years for causing death by dangerous driving, plus a concurrent one-year term for having no insurance at the time.

The 56-year-old was also jailed for a further year for handling stolen goods and a blade, to run consecutively to the driving offences.

He was banned from driving for eight-and-a-half years.
