A motorist left fighting for his life following a three-car collision is now facing jail in relation to the same horror smash.
Vineet Bhatia, who describes himself as an emotional transformation and resilience coach, pleaded guilty to causing serious injury by dangerous driving when he appeared at Maidstone Crown Court yesterday .
He was one of four people injured in the accident on the A21 Lamberhurst by-pass in Tonbridge, Kent, just after 6pm on June 3 last year.
The 38-year-old, had to be cut free from the wreckage and flown by air ambulance in a critical condition to King's College Hospital, London.
According to a post on his Facebook page, he suffered internal bleeding and fractures to his sternum, ribs, pelvis, right ankle and left foot, spent 23 days in hospital and another 15 weeks recovering at his home in Slough, Berkshire.
He also claimed he had blacked out at the wheel as he drove home from Hastings, Sussex, that he took the 'brunt' of the collision, and that no one else was seriously hurt.
However, he now faces sentence for the injuries he has admitted causing to a woman named in court as Clara Dennis.
It was reported at the time that a second person had been trapped in their vehicle while two others were "walking wounded".
Bhatia, who lives in Courtlands Avenue, Langley, faces a maximum sentence of five years' imprisonment.
He was released on bail by Judge Tony Baumgartner until August 16 for the preparation of reports by the probation service.
In October last year, Bhatia took to social media to explain how the smash had personally been "a blessing" as it had forced him to "face his deepest demons".
He also described how he realised life was asking him to "step into a leadership position" and help others to "grow spiritually and emotionally".
The lengthy Facebook post was accompanied by photos of him in hospital and learning to walk again with a frame.
