An out-of-control driver who killed a woman and injured two others - one of them seriously - in a garden centre car park has been ordered to carry out 300 hours of unpaid work.
Rosemary Milroy, 54, was also given a five-year driving ban at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court.
Milroy pleaded guilty to causing the death of Alison Hall, 63, at MGM Garden Centre in Kilmarnock in December 2011. Mrs Hall had been out shopping for a Christmas tree with her husband George, who was seriously injured in the accident.
The court heard that Milroy suffers from multiple sclerosis and was driving a specially-adapted automatic car. Milroy claimed that while reversing in the garden centre car park her foot became stuck on the accelerator pedal and the car moved backwards at full throttle.
She first hit a 60-year-old pedestrian who was thrown into the garden centre window and then crashed into two cars before knocking down Mr and Mrs Hall. Mrs Hall was trapped under the car and pronounced dead at the scene, having suffered injuries to her head, neck and chest.
Mr Hall sustained swelling to the brain, broken bones and a severed thumb and is receiving psychological treatment.
The court heard that Milroy's multiple sclerosis was in no way responsible for the accident.
Mr Hall said Milroy's sentence of 300 hours' work and a five-year driving ban was "a joke".
