A speeding driver has been jailed after a 110mph crash killed his girlfriend.

Nick Tay, 25, of Francis Crick Road, Guildford, was speeding down the A3 near Tolworth at more than double the limit when he veered across two lanes and hit the central reservation causing the car to flip.

Maria Jimenez Montero, 24, who was not wearing a seatbelt, died from her injuries in the early hours of March 22.

Witnesses told police they saw the Peugeot 206, which was in a 50mph zone, speeding past before the crash.

Tay pleaded guilty to causing death by dangerous driving and causing death by driving an uninsured vehicle.

He was jailed for five years and disqualified from driving for four and a half years. at Kingston Crown Court yesterday (November 27).

Sergeant Eddie Ryan from Surrey Police's Serious Collision Investigation Unit said: “This was a tragic collision that has left a family without their daughter and was an incident that was entirely preventable.

“Nick Tay chose to drive at a catastrophically dangerous speed that was more than twice the limit for that area of the road.

“Evidence gathered by officers also show that sadly Ms Montero wasn’t wearing a seatbelt which is likely to have led to her being thrown from the vehicle as it rolled.

“The driver was wearing his seatbelt and was able to crawl out of the car with only a scratch.

“Speed limits are exactly that, limits.

“They are not a target to overcome and the measures in place on roads are there for a reason – to keep motorists and those around them safe.”
