– Iraqi refugee who injured six people and left a police officer with a brain injury when he crashed his speeding truck into eight cars is released from prison just SEVEN months into a three-year sentence:
An Iraqi refugee who seriously injured six people when his speeding truck ploughed into peak hour traffic has been released from jail, just seven months into a three-year term.
Sarmad Nisan was driving at more than 45km/h over the speed limit at Dee Why, on Sydney‘s northern beaches, in October 2014 when he lost control of his truck and crashed, injuring six people.
In April the 42-year-old was jailed on two counts of dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, but on Thursday the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal ordered his release.
Despite leaving Senior Constable Amy Champion with a broken shoulder and ribs, as well as a brain injury, as a result of the accident, the court ordered Mr Nisan ‘should be released forthwith’.
