Watford BMW driver sends moped flying by driving deliberately at him in spat ...

An angry BMW driver swerved into the path of an oncoming moped rider leaving him with horrific injuries because of bad blood between the two over an ex-girlfriend.

John Boyle-Matcham, 23, steered his father's car into the path of Jamie Clarke's Gilera Runner 125 scooter in Watford last year sending him flying through the air.

Boyle-Matcham was jailed for 13 years for the August bank holiday Monday crash, which one person described as looking 'like a war movie' when Mr Clarke's legs appeared to be almost 'severed'.

Mr Clarke, now 21, spent two weeks in intensive care being treated for brain seizures and fractures before spending a total of two months at St George's Hospital in Tooting.

He walks with a crutch and has limited movement to his right forearm and ankle, and is now awaiting a final prognosis.

Prosecutor Sean Sullivan told St Albans Crown Court on Thursday that Jamie was lucky not to have been killed or paralysed.  

Mr Clarke told the jury there had been 'bad feeling' between him and Boyle-Matcham.

He said: 'There was a little issue between us over a girl from many years ago. I was with a girl and we split up or were on the way to splitting up. He got in there and I told him to back off. Ever since then, we have stared each other out.'

He said that on the morning of August 28 last year he was riding his scooter when he saw Boyle-Matcham on a push bike on St Albans Road, Watford.

He said Boyle-Matcham was quite angry and was waving his arms about. As he was wearing a helmet, he could not hear what he was saying.
