21 year old Pascoe Petgrave of Thornton Road, Thorton Heath, has been jailed for two-and-a-half years for causing serious injury by dangerous driving after a hit and run in West Norwood left one victim paralysed from the chest down.
Petgrave, mounted the pavement with his BMW at speed before colliding into two young women, Chanelle Higgins and Nikisha Cox, walking along Norwood High Street, after a night out.just after 4.30am on 29 May 2016.
Chanelle, a mother of two children, broke her neck and was left with devastating spinal injuries and spent six months in hospital recovering. She is now confined to a wheelchair with limited upper-body movement, needing round the clock care.
Petgrave failed to stop at the scene and told jurors he had mounted the pavement fearing for his life after being chased by two men armed with weapons.
His car, which had a smashed window screen as a result of the collision, was later seen in the forecourt of a local petrol station and once the footage of this was circulated among police officers, it was spotted by an officer patrolling in south London. The car was seized and Petrgrave was arrested after reporting his car stolen to police.
Following a three-day trial at Inner London Crown Court, Petgrave was convicted of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and sentenced to two years and six months in prison on Thursday, 9 November 2017. He was also disqualified from driving for two years upon release and required to take an extended driving test at the end of the disqualification period.
Claudette Hamilton, CPS London South reviewing lawyer, said: "We used CCTV footage to demonstrate to the jury the total disregard Petgrave took for his actions. This callous individual, who was uninsured at the time, drove into both women from behind and fled the scene. He did not report the collision to police, forcing the victim to take part in media appeals to identify him.
"This incident has had profound consequences for one victim. Her life has changed dramatically and she will now require round-the-clock care as a result of Petgrave’s actions.
"Dangerous driving can shatter lives and I hope this successful prosecution goes someway in bringing comfort to the victims and their families."
PC Laura Travers, who led the investigation for Lambeth CID, said: "This was a shocking incident.
"These two women were simply on a night out to see friends and now their lives have changed completely."
In 2008, as a 12 year-old, Petgrave made national news headlines when arrested by than 50 police officers when he was accused stealing a £10 note which was hanging out of a cashpoint machine at the now disappeared HSBC bank machine in Thornton Heath
