David Williams calls for lessons to be learnt from M6 crash

Portugese lorry driver, Paulo Jorge Nogueira da Silva, was today found guilty of death by careless driving, which resulted in the tragic death of Michelle and David Statham and their four children.

David Williams, Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Crewe and Nantwich, said:

"I can understand why the relatives and friends of the Statham family feel like justice has not been served.

"Lessons must be learnt, the main lesson being one we can all learn. How many times do we see drivers not giving the road their full attention: talking on mobile phones, texting and other distractions.

"In future drivers should spare a moment to think about the Statham family before they take their mind off the road in front.

"I have contacted the Secretary of State for Transport and asked him to look at a Government awareness campaign about careless driving."

Think Road Safety
