Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

LEAV­ING the scene of a road ac­ci­dent with­out pro­vid­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate in­for­ma­tion has re­sulted in a fine of €1,000 for a Florin Dinu of Cool­ree, Ballindag­gin.

The de­fen­dant was not present in court when Garda Vin­cent Downes gave ev­i­dence of at­tend­ing to the scene of a crash at Bon­nyville, Bally­breen, Kil­lanne on May 2 of last year.

Garda Downes said that at the scene it ap­peared a ve­hi­cle had crashed into a res­i­den­tial wall. He said that, while the car had left the scene, some de­bris was left be­hind, in­clud­ing a regis­tra­tion plate. When he looked up the de­tails, he found that Florin Dinu was the owner of the ve­hi­cle and called to him and ques­tioned him about the in­ci­dent.

Upon hear­ing all the ev­i­dence, Judge Haughton opted to con­vict Dinu in his ab­sence. When asked if he had li­cence de­tails for the de­fen­dant, Garda Downes re­sponded that Dinu had told him that he did not have a li­cence.

Upon hear­ing this, Judge Haughton handed down a €1,000 fine and a three year driv­ing ban.
