A tragic incident unfolded on the A1 when Darryl Anderson, driving at 141mph and nearly three times over the alcohol limit, crashed into a Peugeot 308, resulting in the death of eight-month-old Zackary Blades and his aunt, Karlene Warner. The impact of the crash led to the death of the two victims, while Zackary's mother, Sharlona Warner, who was driving, fortunately only suffered minor injuries.

During the sentencing at Durham County Court, it was revealed that Anderson had taken a photo of his speedometer showing 141mph just moments before the fatal collision. The court also heard that Sharlona Warner tearfully described the heartbreaking moment of searching for her son who was thrown from his car seat, into the opposite carriageway of the motorway, leading to his tragic death. Further details emerged during the court proceedings, such as Anderson's erratic driving behavior from Newcastle airport after consuming excessive alcohol and being in a dispute with his wife.

The judge, Joanne Kidd, expressed that Anderson had been endangering the lives of other drivers that night by playing "Russian roulette," leading to the inevitable fatal crash. Anderson's breathalyser test showed a significantly high alcohol level of 95mg per 100ml of breath, well above the legal limit of 35mg. Additionally, police found an empty vodka bottle in his wrecked car, indicating his level of intoxication at the time of the accident. The tragic incident led to grief and heartbreak for the family members of the victims, who were present at the sentencing, painting a poignant picture of their loss through victim impact statements.
