OnlyFans star mowed down by drunk driver begged ‘let me die’ as she lay in agony
An OnlyFans star who was struck by a drunk driver and left lying on the road in agony has lashed out at her sentence.
Finley Taylor, 27, was knocked down near her home in Ammanford, south Wales, on May 30 by Emily Down.
She was flung into the air during the 40mph collision and suffered horrifying injuries, requiring 15 stitches in her leg.
Finley, who was out walking her dog with husband Eddie, previously told The Sun that the crash “tore my leg open and the fat came out of it”.
She also begged rugby players from a nearby club to let her die because she was in so much pain, Wales Online reports.
Down appeared at Llanelli Magistrates' Court on July 1 where she received a £153 fine and a 28-month driving ban after pleading guilty to driving a motor vehicle when above the drink-drive limit, driving a motor vehicle without a licence, and failing to stop after a road accident.
She was more than twice the legal drink-drive limit at the time of the collision, with 92mg of alcohol in 100ml of breath when her white Citroen DS3 hit Finley.
The legal limit is 35.
Finley, who was in court to hear the verdict, said she has had to stop her work as an adult model as a result of the collision, and doesn’t know when she’ll be able to pick it back up.

She accused Down of “smirking” as she pleaded guilty to the charges and said the defendant showed “very little emotion other than being vaguely irritated by having to be there”.
As well as the fine and driving ban, Down must carry out 250 hours of unpaid work and complete a 30-day rehabilitation course.
Responding to the verdict after the case, Finley said: “It’s really disappointing.

"I think she should have got so much more than that. I am not living my life as I was before this happened to me.”
In the days after the incident, Finley said: “I can’t describe how bad the pain was. I didn’t even see the car coming, I was just in intense pain and scared.
“As I lay there I recall being sure I was going to die […] I was begging the rugby players to let me die.”

After emergency surgery, including scans and 15 stitches to her leg, Finley is still making progress in her recovery.
She added: “I still feel pretty rough, I have another appointment next week,” she said. “My left side is still in some pain and I’m not walking as I should be.
“My leg is now free [from bandages] but I’m still very sore. I don’t know how long it will be until I’ve recovered.”
