A MOTORIST whose driving left a bus driver in a wheelchair unable to do the job he loved, has been fined.

Car driver Izabela Goslawska, 41, turned right into the path of the 57-year-old bus driver as he was going home on his motorbike, York Magistrates' Court heard.

The two vehicles collided, “resulting in him coming off the bike, flying into the air and hitting the ground, causing serious injuries to his leg,” said Kathryn Walters, prosecuting.

The collision happened at the traffic-light-controlled junction of The Mount, Dalton Terrace and Blossom Street.

In a personal statement, the bus driver said the crash "has affected every aspect of my life".

Nine months after the crash, he has to use a wheelchair and a mobility scooter, cannot drive and has no date when he can go back to work.
