Livesey pleaded guilty to the charges at a hearing earlier this year, following the crash in Hatfield Lane, Armthorpe on August 10, 2014 which left 19-year-old Danielle Stoton with life-threatening injuries.

Danielle only returned home a few weeks ago following the collision, and spent more than five months undergoing rehabilitation at the Magnolia Neuro-rehabilitation Unit in Tickhill.

The former Doncaster college pupil still needs to return to the Neuro-rehabilitation Unit several times a week for appointments with a physiotherapist, psychiatrist, a speech therapist and an occupational therapist.

Danielle is reliant on her parents Paul and Michelle Stoton and a carer, who spends 33 hours a week tending to her daily needs.
