TWO women walking down a street were seriously injured by a falling jet ski.

Ellen Sweet and Annette Bryant were hit when the vehicle tumbled off Bradley Cannings’ car trailer.

Mrs Sweet nearly lost her left eye and suffered a broken finger. Doctors had to cut off her wedding and engagement rings to treat her and she had to take eight weeks off her job as an NHS clerk.

Mrs Bryant suffered bruising to her chest, ribs, legs and abdomen.

The pair needed help with everyday tasks for ­several weeks. Building firm boss Cannings, 45, of Exeter, admitted careless driving in Torquay in April. He was fined £600 with £150 costs and given six points.

Exeter crown court heard a ball hitch and line holding the jet ski both failed. A second securing line was not fitted.


Judge David Evans blasted Cannings’ “sloppy behaviour” and “inattentiveness”.

He added: “The victims say this could have been avoided if you had taken a few seconds or minutes more.”

He did not award compensation as the women should be able to claim from Cannings’ insurers.
