The Oban Times - - News -

A MAN drove at danger­ous speeds down a sin­gle­track road near Taynuilt, hit a car and a van and kept go­ing.

When po­lice tracked him down at Cri­an­larich, they found his badly dam­aged ve­hi­cle had been run­ning with the tyre com­pletely gone from one wheel.

‘I’ve got to get a report here. What on earth has been go­ing on?’ said Sher­iff Ruth An­der­son QC at Oban Sher­iff Court last week.

In the dock was Wil­liam Reid, 28, of 18 Lora View, North Con­nel, who pleaded guilty to danger­ous driv­ing on the un­clas­si­fied road be­tween the B845 and the A85 near Taynuilt, at speeds ex­ces­sive for the pre­vail­ing con­di­tions and col­lid­ing with a car and van, and also to drink driv­ing.

Sen­tence was de­ferred un­til June 21 for a report.
