A THIEF who stole a lorry and then ran over the driver has been sent to prison for three years and eight months.
Leonard Willsher was sentenced at Basildon Crown Court last week after he admitted a string of offences that left delivery driver David Fletcher fighting for his life.
Willsher and another man jumped into Fletcher's lorry in July last year and attempted to drive off. The driver chased after them, but was pushed as he clung to the vehicle's wing mirror.
He fell to the ground and then his lorry drove over him, leaving him with multiple injuries.
