AN ACOCKS Green driver who mounted the pavement and deliberately hit another man before driving off has been jailed.

Adrian Peach left the man seriously injured in Rover Drive, Smiths Wood, last July.

West Midlands Police say Peach struck him initially, then reversed and drove at him again, leaving the man with severe head injuries which still impact upon him.

It’s understood to have stemmed from earlier disorder and after Police were able to identify Peach as the driver he was arrested.




The 35-year-old from Acocks Green, Birmingham, admitted causing grievous bodily harm, although he was cleared by a jury of attempted murder.

He was jailed for 13 years at Leamington Justice Centre.
