A sentence could be handed down today to a Surrey man who killed an elderly man when he crashed a sports car into a bus shelter.

28-year-old Gurjit Dhillon was driving his brother’s corvette when he swerved off the road and struck 83-year-old Pritam Benning.

Benning’s legs were virtually severed and he died of his injuries.

The crown wants at least two and a half years in prison and a 10-year driving ban.

The defence says Dhillon has no criminal record, and wants a suspended sentence and a driving ban.
