Compensation for Pete Doherty's car crash victim

A man from Ipswich has been awarded road traffic accident compensation after being run over by the singer Pete Doherty's car.

The Daimler was being driven at the time by the singer's uninsured agent and hit the 45-year-old as he was hand delivering church newsletters near Hadleigh in Suffolk.

The car accident caused the man to sustain life-changing personal injuries, including multiple fractures and brain injuries. Although in a stable condition the man is unaware of his surroundings and the people around him.

The driver of the car was jailed for a year after he admitted to dangerous driving and Doherty was banned from driving for 12 months as a result of allowing an uninsured motorist to drive his vehicle.

The victim of the car accident and his family are set to receive an undisclosed amount of road traffic compensation, as well as annual five-figure payments which will go towards the cost of care required for the rest of the man's life.

The compensation was authorised by the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB), an organisation set up to compensate innocent victims of uninsured drivers. However, the court order also allows the MIB to reclaim their money from the singer and his agent.
