Football starlet in court after road traffic accident

A young footballer tipped for stardom faces a jail sentence after causing a road traffic accident that injured a mother and her two young children.

19-year-old Izak Reid, an apprentice with League Two outfit Macclesfield Town, pleaded guilty to dangerous driving and is now awaiting pre-sentencing reports before discovering the extent of his punishment.

Travelling at over 60mph in a black Peugeot, the striker attempted to overtake a line of six cars on a 40mph section of the A523 in Cheshire. Misjudging the manoeuvre, he ploughed head-on into a Land Rover Discovery at such a speed that his car was thrown into the air and smashed into another vehicle coming the opposite way.

The driver of the Land Rover, who wished to remain anonymous, said, "I swerved as hard as I could to the left but the black car hit my vehicle head-on.

"My daughter was screaming in the back of the car. I am extremely angry about the incident. He had no regard for the dangerous way he was driving."

The woman and her children were taken to hospital after the road traffic accident to have their personal injuries examined. She and her two-year-old son were treated for whiplash injuries and seatbelt burns, but her four-year-old daughter was lucky to escape any physical damage.

Macclesfield Town FC has refused to comment on the case.
