Woman Jailed For Posting Extremely Insensitive Statement After Fatal Car Crash

In June of last year, Jasmine Larder, 20, was driving her VW Polo when it spun out of control soon hitting a tree on the A39 in Somerset. She had four passengers, but her best friend Ellie Clare, 19, and George Stott, 21, died from fatal injuries.

A court found that the only reason for the crash was careless driving. Yet, only a few months later, Larder posted a picture of herself with a new car stating "have new coils. So it begins. Back in the game." Once he found out, Judge David Ticehurst rejected any suggestion Larder was remorseful.

He then jailed her for 15 months and said, "You are 20 years old and you were convicted of causing the death by careless driving of two friends, one of them was your best friend. Another passenger suffered life-changing injuries. The impact of your careless driving is incalculable. You were interviewed by the police in September 2014."

He continued "At the end of October you acquired a replacement car, equipped it with a lower suspension and arranged for the transfer of your personalised number plate. You celebrated that part with the following message on social media 'have new coils. So it begins. Back in the game.' That does not suggest someone who is racked with guilt at causing the deaths of two of your friends. It suggests someone who sees driving as a game or a sport."

Miss Clare's father Simon Clare said, "It feels some days like that last 20 years of my life have been lost. I miss my Ellie."
