Driver killed girl, 12, as she got off bus on way home from school

David Pursglove was driving at around 50% above the speed limit

Pursglove appeared back before Liverpool Crown Court on Friday, December 1, for sentencing. Prosecutor Steven Ball told the court: “After leaving the bus, Lexi ran across the front of the bus into the central carriageway and she was struck by the van, driven by the defendant, at 42.77mph. The force of the collision projected Lexi further up the road. The van screeched to a halt. The defendant immediately got out and summoned help, and the road was quickly sealed off.”
