The accident was caused when Reader attempted to overtake a stationary car, not realising it had stopped because the car in front was turning right.
Reader overtook the car and smashed straight in to the side of the Seat before driving through a hedge and turning the car on to its roof.
"I literally saw a black blur, it was coming so quick," the victim said.
The courts told Reader that he "should have been aware of the intention of Mr Cork to turn right … and should not have attempted this overtaking manoeuvre"
