A driver who killed a father of two said he just wanted to 'nudge' his victim.

Muhammed Ghulam Ali, 37, has been jailed for over seven years after deliberately driving at Matthew Hancock and Brent Clayton who were on a night out in June last year.

Mr Hancock, 30, was killed in the 'extreme road rage' incident while Mr Clayton was injured.

Prosecutor Deborah Gould said: 'The defendant began to rev his engine. The car engine continued to rev in short, sharp blasts.



'Mr Clayton suddenly felt himself being hit by the vehicle. It accelerated, knocking him to the floor.

'It didn't stop despite hitting the two men. The defendant continued to drive forward and over the two men.'

Ali, a restaurant boss, fled the scene in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, telling one of his waiters that he was going to set his Mitsubishi Shogun on fire and flee the country.

He told police he had driven at them deliberately saying he didn't intend to cause serious harm. When it came to court he admitted manslaughter and inflicting grievous bodily harm.

Ali was given a seven-and-a-half-year prison sentence and banned from driving for six years.
