UK: Drunk driver killed man in crash then returned to pub
Henderson told his partner he had "f***** up", opened two cans of lager, reported his car stolen then fell asleep on the sofa.
A drunk driver returned to the pub after crashing into a bus stop at high speed and killing a man, a court heard.
Martin Henderson, 30, was travelling at more than double the speed limit when he lost control of his car while overtaking and ploughed into people in Aberdeen.
Allan Forbes, 70, was thrown into a nearby car park by the force of the impact, suffered "catastrophic, unsurvivable injuries" and died at the scene in Bucksburn.
Chloe Donaldson, then 18, was severely injured and now has metal pins holding part of her leg together after she was also hit, despite waiting a short distance from the bus shelter.
The High Court in Edinburgh heard Henderson fled the scene for a nearby pub, where he ordered a pint and then returned home to Inverurie, Aberdeenshire.
There, he told his partner he had "f***** up", opened two cans of lager, reported his car stolen to the police and fell asleep on the couch.
He pleaded guilty on Tuesday to causing death by dangerous driving and attempting to pervert the course of justice.
