Cocaine fuelled driver kills parents leaving children orphaned

Cocaine fuelled driver kills parents leaving children orphaned after a serious collision in Lincoln.

Drugged up driver in Lincoln killed dedicated and caring parents leaving their children orphaned but only gets eight-year sentence.

A 31-year-old man, Luke Norton, has been sentenced to eight-years in jail for being under the influence of large quantities of cocaine.

He fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into an oncoming vehicle. The ford focus was transporting family of four Robert Bateman, 36, and his wife, Paula, 35, who died in the collision, and their two children.

The “utterly devoted” parents leave behind two young daughters, Lexi, aged, 10 and Elizabeth, 18-months old, who were also in the car.

Lexi was briefly hospitalised for serious injuries and Elizabeth remarkably was relatively unscathed. Both children have now been discharged from medical care.
