A late-night high-speed NHS nurse has been shut down for a night shift after ‘almost killing’ pedestrians at the Great Bar.

An NHS nurse ‘late for work’ who hit a pedestrian after trying to jump a traffic light more than twice the speed limit has been arrested. Rupa Kumar was behind the wheel of her Mercedes-Benz GLA when she collided with Jerry Dart just 10 minutes before the start of the 12-hour night shift at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield.

The 42-year-old woman was more than six miles from her place of work when the car paralyzed Mr. Dart and threw him into the air before landing several meters in front of the car. Mr Dort, a forklift driver, was left with life-threatening injuries and only realized he had been injured in the tragedy when he woke up three weeks later in a coma.

He also discovered that his brother had died in the Czech Republic and had missed a chance to say goodbye. Investigations later revealed that Kumar, the mother of two, was running at a speed of 64 miles per hour in the 30-mile-per-hour zone when she went hunting.

Wolverhampton Crown Court heard how Mr. Dart was walking toward the Aldi Store on the corner of Newton Road and Birmingham Road in the Great Bar on March 6 last year. He walked down Bromford Walk and was trying to cross three lanes to reach the supermarket when Kumar “speeded through the traffic lights”.

Prosecutor Jaspreet Dhaliwal said: “He was lifted well above the defendant’s Mercedes and thrown several meters in front of him.” Emergency services arrived at the scene before paramedics took Mr Dort, who was unconscious, to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham.

Medical experts discovered that he suffered multiple injuries, including a skull fracture, a shoulder injury, genital injuries, significant abdominal bleeding, a facial fracture, and a fracture in his left arm and ribs. While in the hospital’s intensive care unit, she needed breathing and limb support, the court heard Monday (June 27th).

Mr Dort did not remember why he was in hospital when he woke up three weeks after the accident. He was unable to bathe himself, climb stairs without help, lift his arm above his shoulder, or chew some food, such as steak or pork.

The ‘constant pain’ made her sleepy and she is now afraid to cross the road. In a statement read out to the court, Mr Dart said: “Since March 6, 2021, when I was hit by a car, my life has changed around 180 degrees.

“Now I wonder if I will ever be able to go back to work. I feel very frustrated that I am unable to do what I could have done before the accident.

“[I have] Becoming more angry and short tempered. I can’t handle it. I keep asking myself if my life will be like this from now on.

“I’ve gone from a hardworking man to a man who can’t work.” The victim – who moved to the UK from the Czech Republic – added: “Mentally, I’m struggling. My life is not what it used to be.

“I’m just drinking to distract from the events of the day.” Kumar of Ray Hall Lane of Great Bar told police that he started applying the brakes as soon as he saw Mr. Dart crossing the road but he did not look at his speedometer and was not sure if he was speeding. Running from

Defending, Christopher Martin said the married woman is a “highly respected” nurse and has been caring for patients for more than 20 years. He worked at the Under Staff Hospital during the epidemic and saw several of his colleagues die after contracting the virus.

The offender – who has been driving for 13 years – will also send handwritten cards to bereaved families who were unable to go to the hospital to say goodbye to their loved ones due to restrictions. Mr Martin said Britain was facing a “second wave” of cowardice when the crime took place last year.

He added that Kumar had slept for eight hours before leaving his black country home at 6.20 pm for a 30-minute journey to the hospital. Mr Martin said: “She can count the number of times she has driven since March 2021.

“She has dedicated more than two decades of her life to saving lives and helping those in need. She told me that she is struggling to cope with what is happening.”

Sentencing, Judge Barry Berlin said Mr Dort could have “died” in a “terrible” accident. The judge said Kumar was “rushing to work” and “there was no chance” that she would change her place in time.

She told the court: “If she had started her shift at 7pm and it was 6.50pm, she would not have gone to Good Hope Hospital in 10 minutes from that area. That would not have happened.”

The judge added: “It was not just the speed, it was the speed towards the traffic lights, it was the speed at which the lights jumped and in an area where there was a lot of traffic and people.” Kumar, who had no previous charges, admitted that he suffered serious injuries from dangerous driving.

He was jailed for 18 months and banned from driving for 28 months.
