Teen who left Hatfield gran fighting for life locked up
A TEENAGER has been convicted of GBH after a grandmother who had popped out for some shopping was left fighting for her life.
Eddie Jewitt was convicted for the freak accident which happened outside Asda in Hatfield in September last year, along with two robberies and a charge of affray.
The 19-year-old violently crashed into Joanna Hillman while rushing past the store’s front doors on a pushbike.
The force of the impact threw the married grandmother-of-four to the floor, causing a serious head injury.
She was rushed to the QE2 Hospital for treatment and as her condition deteriorated she was transferred to the Royal Free Hospital in London.
