A 20-year-old man from Maidenhead has been jailed following a serious collision with two cyclists in Twyford.

The incident occurred on June 2, 2023, on the A4 Bath Road towards Reading.

Zahin Ali appeared at Reading Crown Court on Monday, March 18 where he was sentenced after pleading guilty in the same court to two counts of dangerous driving.

On June 2, Ali was driving a Vauxhall Astra along the A4 Bath Road and failed to stop at a roundabout.

The cyclists, a woman in her forties and a woman in her fifties, both sustained life-changing injuries.

Investigating officer Sergeant Matthew Cadmore, of the Joint Operations Roads Policing Unit, said: “The victims’ lives and those of their families have been tipped upside down due to Zahin Ali deciding to drive so carelessly.

“Everyone has the right to travel on the road safely, whether by car, motorcycle, pedal cycle, horse or on foot.

“Drivers should take extra care to avoid collisions with vulnerable road users, because a pedestrian, cyclist, motorcyclist or horse rider will always come off worse.

“I hope this sentence serves as a reminder to people who chose to drive in such a manner that there are consequences not only for them but for others too.”
