A woman who crushed a man's leg and face between two vehicles was sentenced Friday to eight months in jail for impaired driving causing bodily harm.

Nora Lee Noonan, 29, pleaded guilty to the April 7 incident at Cymbria Lions Club on P.E.I.'s North Shore. Noonan backed a pickup truck into a 40-year-old Rustico man. She pinned him between the truck and his minivan, and the man suffered a broken leg and damage to his face.

Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Taylor called it a nightmarish event.

In addition to eight months in jail, Noonan lost her licence for two years.
