“I will admit to everything – I don’t care” was the response by killer driver Luke Davidson after police caught up with him after he fled a fatal crash scene.

Davidson, 20, had filled up his black Chrysler 300 before attempting to turn right out of the Esso filling station on the A1421 at Witcham Toll near Ely.

He drove in front of motorcyclist Ian Parnell who was pronounced dead at the scene.

But, a court heard, Davidson got out of his car, looked at Mr Parnell, 57, on the ground, and fled.

The fatal crash took place at about 5.15pm on 20 May.

Davidson was identified on the filling station’s CCTV, and he called police at about 6.30pm to say he was responsible for the crash.

He was arrested nearby in Church Road, Wentworth.

Enquiries found Davidson was a disqualified driver, having been convicted of drug driving in August last year, for which he received an 18-month disqualification.

He was also convicted of driving whilst disqualified in November and received a further four-month ban.

On Friday (8 September), at Cambridge Crown Court, Davidson, of New Road, Mepal, was jailed for four years and seven months.

He admitted causing death by driving whilst disqualified and causing death by driving a vehicle whilst unlicensed and uninsured.

Davidson was also disqualified from driving for eight years.

Detective Sergeant Craig Wheeler said: “This was a terrible collision that saw a much-loved father lose his life and our thoughts continue to be with his family.

“Davidson selfishly got behind the wheel of the car despite knowing he was disqualified and only he will know why he did what he did.

“Ultimately, I am glad he has faced justice and I hope this sentence gives Mr Parnell’s family some closure.”
