Pop Singer Nadine Samuels Arrested For Killing A Cyclist
A British pop singer known for touring with Little Mix has been arrested after killing a cyclist in a road accident.
Nadine Samuels, part of girl group M.O, failed to stop at a roundabout, smashing into a 54-year-old cyclist.
It is understood the 27-year-old drove her blue Ford KA into mother of three, Debbie Mills, who was thrown into the air with such force that she struck the windscreen and then the road. The 54-year-old suffered severe brain injuries and died in hospital.
Samuels was sentenced in court after pleading guilty to causing death by careless driving.

The performer reportedly wept as Debbie Mills' son paid tribute to his mother, saying that she was a valued member of the community who had taken up cycling as a hobby.
Judge Michael Kay QC sentenced Samuels to eight months imprisonment, and banned her from driving for two years and four months.
"You did not see Mrs Mills. You did not stop and you collided with her bicycle and she was knocked off. Very tragically she died from her injuries," he said. "There is nothing I can say or do which can restore a life to a bereaved family. My heart goes out to them."
