Texting driver who killed solicitor's clerk in crash while checking his phone

Texting driver who killed solicitor's clerk in crash while checking his phone after night of drinking is jailed for six years

Craig Eccleston-Todd, 27, had drunk at least three pints before driving car
 Was using phone when he veered across road in Yarmouth, Isle of Wight
 Crashed head-on into 28-year-old Rachel Titley's car, who died in hospital
 Police say he would have been over legal drink-drive limit at time of crash
 He was found guilty at Portsmouth Crown Court of causing death by dangerous driving

A drunk driver who killed a young woman in a head-on crash while checking his mobile phone has been jailed for six years.

Craig Eccleston-Todd, 27, was driving home from a night at a pub when he received a text message.

As he was reading or replying to it, he veered across the road while driving round a bend and smashed into Rachel Titley’s car coming the other way.

Police said Eccleston-Todd had drunk at least three or four pints of beer before getting behind the wheel.

He was found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving at Portsmouth Crown Court yesterday.

Miss Titley, a 28-year-old solicitor’s clerk from Cowes, Isle of Wight, had also spent the evening with friends at a pub but had not drunk any alcohol, police said.

She was driving responsibly and there was ‘nothing she could have done to avoid the collision’, they added.

Lindsay Pennell, prosecuting, said: ‘Craig Eccleston-Todd’s driving resulted in the tragic death of a young woman, Rachel Titley, a death that could have been avoided.

‘Mr Eccleston-Todd took the decision to pick up his mobile phone whilst driving and, either reading or replying to this text message, was so distracted that he failed to negotiate a left-hand bend, crossing the central white line into the path of Miss Titley’s oncoming car.

‘Miss Titley [had] a bright future ahead of her. She was also returning home having spent an enjoyable evening with friends and was driving responsibly.

‘She had arranged to contact her friends when she got home to confirm that she had arrived safely. Her friends sadly never heard from her after they parted company.

‘Miss Titley’s death in these circumstances reiterates the danger of using a hand-held mobile phone whilst driving.’

Police were unable to take breath or blood tests from Eccleston-Todd immediately, but in tests several hours after the accident he was only marginally under the drink-drive limit.

Mr Eccleston-Todd will now spend six years behind bars, but Rachel's family have lost her forever
PC Mark Furse

The judge agreed with police that he would have been over the limit at the time his red Citroen hit Miss Titley’s blue Daihatsu Cuore on a road near Yarmouth, Isle of Wight, on October 11, 2013. His phone records showed he was also texting around the time of the crash.

PC Mark Furse, from Hampshire constabulary’s serious collision investigation unit, said: 'Our thoughts are with Rachel's family at this time. She had been out with friends at a pub in Shalfleet that evening, but had not had any alcohol.

'Our investigation showed that there was nothing she could have done to avoid the collision and sadly it cost her her life.

'Mr Eccleston-Todd had left work in Yarmouth and met with friends at a pub where he drank at least three to four pints of lager. He hadn't long left the pub to return home when the collision occurred at around 9.30pm.

'We weren't able to take breath or blood tests from him immediately and although blood taken several hours after the collision showed he was marginally under the limit, we maintain he would have been over the limit at the time of the collision and in summing up today, the judge agreed.

'The analysis of his phone records showed that he was texting on his phone around the time of the collision so it's highly likely this would also have contributed to his dangerous driving and loss of control.'

He added: 'Mr Eccleston-Todd will now spend six years behind bars, but Rachel's family have lost her forever.

'I hope this will make people think twice before drinking any alcohol and getting behind the wheel, or using a phone once they're on the road.

'The dangers of drink driving and driving whilst using a mobile phone are obvious. Those who continue to do so risk spending a substantial time in prison. This case highlights just how tragic the consequences of committing these offences can be.'

‘Mr Eccleston-Todd will now spend six years behind bars, but Rachel’s family have lost her for ever. I hope this will make people think twice before drinking any alcohol and getting behind the wheel, or using a phone once they’re on the road. This case highlights just how tragic the consequences of committing these offences can be.’

Eccleston-Todd, of Newport, Isle of Wight, was also disqualified from driving for eight years after which he will have to complete an extended re-test.
