Man sentenced to prison for causing serious injury by dangerous and causing grievous bodily harm with intent in Milton Keynes

    Following an investigation by Thames Valley Police, a man has been sentenced to prison after he was convicted of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and causing grievous bodily harm with intent in Milton Keynes.

    Nikesh Mistry, aged 34, of Groundsel Close, Walnut Tree, Milton Keynes pleaded guilty to two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving and one count causing grievous bodily harm with intent, following a hearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on 20 December 2023.

    Appearing at Aylesbury Crown Court on Thursday (13/3), Mistry was sentenced to a total of four years and ten months’ imprisonment.

    He was also disqualified from driving for four years and ten months and will need to take an extended re-test before getting his licence back.

    On 19 November 2022, Mistry was driving a silver BMW 320 near the Walton Roundabout, Milton Keynes.

    On entering the roundabout there was an incident with a motorbike ridden by the victim, a man aged in his 40s from Oxley Park, Milton Keynes.

    Both vehicles entered Brickhill Street, travelling north, with the motorcycle alongside the BMW. A non-verbal exchange occurred between Mistry and the rider of the motorcycle. 

    Mistry then recklessly decided to use his vehicle to force the motorcyclist to the offside of the carriageway swerving towards him. Both vehicles travelled onto the wrong side of the road with the rider of the motorcycle forced to take evasive action to avoid a collision.

    Mistry continued to force the rider of the motorcycle off the road, up onto the verge, squashing the motorcycle between his vehicle and some metal barrier bridge railing.

    The rider of the motorcycle was thrown from his bike and was catapulted over the bridge landing in undergrowth underneath the bridge.

    The rider of the motorcycle sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.

    Mistry, unable to control his vehicle further, collided head on with another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction, causing serious injuries to the front passenger of this car.   

    They were taken taken by ambulance to Milton Keynes University Hospital.

    Mistry was charged with the offences via a postal requisition on 22 May 2023.

    Investigating officer PC Phil McGlue of the Roads Policing Unit, said: “This case is an extreme example of road rage.

    “Mistry was not in any immediate danger and chose to respond in a manner that was so violent and so disproportionate that he turned road disagreement into a very serious assault.

    “Drivers who behave in such a manner will be rigorously investigated and held to account for their actions and Mistry will now serve a prison sentence as a result of those decisions.”
