Driver's winking selfie moments before killing biker released by police

A selfie that a killer driver zoomed in on moments before hitting a man on a motorcycle has been released by police.

Amber Potter, 23, was sentenced to three and a half years at Norwich Crown Court this week after admitting causing the death of David Sinar.

She ploughed into the back of him on 15 September 2021, on the A11 in Norfolk.

Mr Sinar, 64, had just bought a vintage Lambretta scooter from Bournemouth and was on his way home.

As well as taking selfies behind the wheel, analysis of Potter's phone showed she had sent texts, audio clips and had been on Facebook Messenger.

The phone was in 'do not disturb' mode, which police said showed she went out of her way to use it.

Potter denied being on her phone before hitting Mr Sinar but could not explain why she failed to see him.

The crash happened round 9.25pm as she drove her Vauxhall Corsa from Glastonbury to her home in Norwich.

Mr Sinar's wife told the court his death had made life "unbearable", leaving their teenage son without a dad and his 97-year-old mother heartbroken.

"This tragic case highlights the devastating effects drivers who interact with their mobile devices whilst driving have on others," said Andrew Hughes of the Norfolk and Suffolk collision investigation unit

"It is the reason it features in the 'fatal four' offences and continues to be a focus for police.

"It is a selfish and needless act which has severe consequences for so many people."
