A driver lied to a nurse about his blood sugar levels, never informed the DVLA about having diabetes and then lost control of his car hitting a pedestrian.
Darren Lock, 41 drove his car in Bedford last June despite knowing his blood sugar levels were low and caused destruction along the way.
He caused drivers to swerve, clipped a wing mirror and drove with his front bumper hanging off before he finally stopped, only after hitting a pedestrian.
Mr Dawkins, who was hit, suffered two broken neck vertebrae, a broken arm, broken leg, a punctured lung and a burst artery. He had to spend a week in intensive care due to the injuries.
Prosecutor Kevin Barry issued Mr Lock with a three year driving ban and jailed him for six months.
