Drink drive crash trial set

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The trial date has been set for a Ruther­glen man ac­cused of crash­ing his car while drink driv­ing.

Stephen Greene, 27, is ac­cused of mount­ing a grass verge and crash­ing his car into a lamp­post at Glen­lyon Place af­ter con­sum­ing too much al­co­hol on De­cem­ber 12.

It is al­leged he con­sumed so much al­co­hol that the pro­por­tion of it in his breath ex­ceeded the pre­scribed limit, 22 mi­cro­grams of al­co­hol in 100 millil­itres of breath.

He is also charged with driv­ing the ve­hi­cle with­out due care and at­ten­tion or with­out rea­son­able con­sid­er­a­tion for other per­sons.

Greene pleaded not guilty to both of­fences when he ap­peared at Glas­gow Sher­iff Court last week and will stand trial on Oc­to­ber 24.
