Two-year ban for driver who injured women
5:00am Wednesday 16th October 2013 in News
TWO women were injured when a car reversing across a juncton crashed into them, Southampton Crown Court heard.
One was shaken up but the other had to be hospitalised for several days with a suspected fracture of the skull and bruising to the brain.
When police questioned the driver, Daivydas Milvydas, at the scene of the accident at the junction of Brintons Road and St Marks Road, Southampton, the driver gave a false name and date of birth, said prosecutor Anthony Bailey.
He later told them he had missed his turning but had reversed after checking his wing mirrors.
Milvydas, 20, of Burgess Road, Southampton, admitted dangerous driving, obstructing the police and having no insurance.
Judge Andrew Barnett attributed the accident to a momentary loss of concentration, which had serious consequences before giving him a six month suspended sentence and a two-year driving ban.
