A Clevedon woman has been found guilty of killing a grandmother after crashing a van into the side of her home.
Tracy Bibby, aged 35, was found guilty this afternoon (Monday) of causing death by dangerous driving and while disqualified.
The jury was told how Bibby had 'pretended to be a race car driver' and was travelling between 31-40mph when she lost control and crashed into the home of 90-year-old Joan Woodier in Yeolands drive on April 18 last year.
Bibby, of Rushmoor, had previously 'fervently denied' being the driver of the van, stating it was her then-boyfriend Ben Chappell who was at the wheel, but jurors saw through her lie.
Mrs Woodier was in the front room on the phone to her son when the crash happened at 8.23pm.
