A doctor who killed a teenage girl in a horrific head-on crash while driving to work has been spared jail.

Dr Sally Robeson, 33, was driving to Nevill Hall Hospital in Abergavenny, South Wales, to begin her shift when she ploughed into the family car of 19-year-old Rebecca Davies after her parents picked her up from university.  

The student, who suffered catastrophic injuries to her stomach, was rushed the same hospital where Dr Robeson worked as a trauma and orthopaedics specialist but she died two hours after the crash.      

The senior house doctor, who denied causing death by driving without due care and attention in January, claimed she was dazzled by the lights of another car when she lost control of her car on the A4042 in Llanellen, Monmouthshire.

But a jury found her guilty after hearing she had not acted as a 'careful and competent driver'.

Today, Robeson, of Southend-on-Sea, Essex, was spared jail and sentenced to an 18-month community order at Newport Crown Court.

Her husband William also suffered life changing injuries in the collision. 

Ms Davies said: 'I saw lights in front of me - they came from nowhere. There was the bang of impact. It was a loud bang and the windscreen went through and the airbags went
